Grocery retailer Hy-Vee Inc. is recalling some of its meat, poultry, and potato products because they contain mushrooms and tomatoes that McCain Foods has recalled because of potential bacterial contamination.
Hy-Vee officials said in a notice yesterday that McCain Foods recalled the implicated caramelized mushrooms and fire-roasted tomatoes because of possible contamination with Salmonella and Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. McCain Foods is a multinational corporation that specializes in frozen products as well as producing a variety of other foods and food ingredients.
The recall notice posted by Hy-Vee did not include any information from McCain Foods about how the potential contamination was discovered, what caused it, or what whether the supplier has recalled any other products. As of Oct. 18, Hy-Vee had not received any confirmed reports of illnesses or deaths in relation to its recalled products.
Products subject to recall from Hy-Vee stores in the chain’s eight-state region all have best if used by dates of Oct. 22 or sooner.
