Post-Bulletin - 5/7/2024

May 7—WEST DES MOINES, Iowa. — Hy-Vee, Inc. is voluntarily recalling two varieties of its Hy-Vee cream cheese spread and its bulk-packaged cookies and cream mix due to the potential for contamination with salmonella.

These products are manufactured at different third-party facilities around the Midwest and are sold under Hy-Vee's private label and bulk packaging programs. The manufacturers of these products notified Hy-Vee of the potential issue and out of an abundance of caution Hy-Vee is voluntarily recalling these specific products. There have been no confirmed reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of any of these products.

The affected products were distributed to Hy-Vee, Hy-Vee Drugstore and Dollar Fresh Market, and Hy-Vee Fast and Fresh convenience stores across the company's eight-state region: Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The recalled products include the Hy-Vee whipped cream cheese spread, cream Cheeze spread, To Go Cookies & Cream mix and the Cookies & Cream Mix.

No other varieties of Hy-Vee cream cheese or bulk-packaged items are affected by this voluntary recall.

Salmonella is an organism that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, older people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis.

Hy-Vee has voluntarily removed all affected items listed above from its shelves. Customers who purchased the product should dispose of the product or return it to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund. Customers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care representatives at 800-772-4098 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the weekend.
