Despite the flurry of recalls, no illnesses have been confirmed

Hy-Vee, Inc., based in West Des Moines, Iowa, is recalling two varieties of its Hy-Vee Cream Cheese Spread and its bulk-packaged Cookies & Cream Mix because of potential contamination with Salmonella.

The company notes that the recalls are being issued “out of an abundance of caution” and that no illnesses have been reported. But the recall is the sixth food recall since April 26.

On April 26, ConSup North America of Lincoln Park, N.J., recalled approximately 85,984 pounds of ready-to-eat sliced prosciutto ham because it had not been inspected.

So far in May, Gibson Farms has recalled Organic Light Halves and Pieces shelled walnuts because the company believes they could be contaminated with E. Coli 0157:H7.

Cargill Meat Solutions has recalled approximately 16,243 pounds of raw ground beef products that may be contaminated with E. coli O157:H7.

Chuao Chocolatier recalled a single production of Potato Chip mini bar .39oz/11 gram chocolate bars because some packages may contain undeclared hazelnut, which could be lethal to someone with a nut allergy.

This week Hormel Foods Sales announced the recall of two PLANTERS products that have the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes.  Palmer Candy Company of Sioux City, Iowa, recalled its “White Coated Confectionary Items” because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.

Latest food recall

The Hy-Vee recall is simply the latest related to food. The company says the recalled products are manufactured at different third-party facilities around the Midwest and are sold under HyVee’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,” the company said. “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 locations – as well as Hy-Vee Fast and Fresh convenience stores – across the company’s eight-state region of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The recalled products are labeled as outlined below.
