WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Hy-Vee is expanding a salad recall over fears of contamination.
The eight-state grocery chain says it is recalling an additional 12 brands of bagged salads because they may be connected to an outbreak of Cyclospora in the upper Midwest. This new recall is in addition to the one already issued for the 12 ounce Hy-Vee Bagged Garden Salad product pulled from shelves after the start of the investigation.
The expanded recall affects the following products:

Hy-Vee says symptoms of cyclosporiasis begin an average of seven days after ingestion of Cyclospora. Symptoms of cyclosporiasis may include: watery diarrhea (most common), loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and low-grade fever. If not treated, symptoms can persist for several weeks to a month or more. People who are in poor health or who have weakened immune systems may be at higher risk for severe or prolonged illness.
