The outbreak connected to recalled Hy-Vee Spring Pasta Salad has sickened 79 people in nine states, with 18 hospitalized, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No deaths have been reported. It was sold at all Hy-Vee grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

Symptoms of a salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps, and typically occur within 12 to 72 hours. The product, which contains pasta shells, carrots, celery, cucumbers, green pepper, onion and mayonnaise, is sold in 1-pound and 3-pound plastic containers and is also available in smaller sizes from the deli service case. The expiration date on the salad packaging ranges from June 22 to August 3. The illness usually lasts about four to seven days, with most healthy individuals recovering without the need for treatment. In some cases where the illness becomes severe, hospitalization may be required and death is a possibility.

Food safety attorney Fred Pritzker, who has represented many clients in the Fareway Foods chicken salad Salmonella outbreak that took place in spring 2018, said, "Ready-to-eat foods should never be contaminated with enough pathogenic bacteria to make someone sick". The infection can spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and other parts of the body. These cases can turn deadly if not promptly treated with antibiotics.
