Hy-Vee is recalling several meat and potato products due to salmonella and listeria concerns.

The possible contamination was discovered after its supplier, McCain Foods announced a recall of caramelized mushrooms and roasted tomatoes that are used in some Hy-Vee products. 


Out of an abundance of caution, Hy-Vee is recalling the following products from all of its stores:

Hy-Vee Bacon Wrapped Cowgirl Chicken Grillers – 8 ounce each
UPC Code 023092600000

Hy-Vee Fire Roasted Tomato, Spinach, Mozzarella Twice Baked Potato – 5 ounce each
UPC Code 023755400000

Hy-Vee Cowgirl Chicken Griller Patty – 6 ounce each
UPC Code 023100200000

Hy-Vee Gourmet Steakhouse Mushroom & Swiss Burger – 6 ounce each
UPC Code 023168400000

Hy-Vee Ground Beef Sliders Mushroom & Swiss – 2 ounce each
UPC Code 023164300000

Hy-Vee Ground Beef Sliders Mushroom & Swiss – 12 count, 30 ounces
UPC Code 023266600000

All impacted products have a “Best If Used By” date of Oct. 22, 2018, or sooner.


The Iowa-based grocery store chain advises customers not to eat any of the items, but rather throw them away or return them to the store for a refund.

Hy-Vee also has a phone line open to field questions on the recall. That number is 800-772-4098.
