November 24, 2020 7:24pm

Hy-Vee is voluntarily recalling two of its Hy-Vee Short Cuts vegetable mix products across its eight-state region due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes.

The potential for contamination was discovered during routine safety sampling at Hy-Vee’s Short Cuts production facility. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.

The products that Hy-Vee is recalling include...Hy-Vee Short Cuts Pot Roast Mix, and Hy-Vee Short Cuts Grill/Oven Ready Veggie Mix.

Customers who purchased any of these products with these dates should not consume them. Customers are being asked to discard these items, or return them to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
