OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Hy-Vee is recalling an additional 12 salads across its eight-state region due to a possible Cyclospora contamination.

Last week, the grocery store chain pulled their 12 oz. Hy-Vee bagged Garden Salad product after Fresh Express, who manufactures the product, announced that the FDA and CDC had been investigating an outbreak of Cyclospora in the upper-Midwest region of the U.S.

Hy-Vee announced Saturday that the FDA and CDC had expanded their investigation of the outbreak and 12 additional salads have been pulled from the store's shelves.

There are now 13 salad products being recalled total, including all expiration dates.

The products were distributed to Hy-Vee stores across Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Customers who bought any of the products should throw them away or return them to their local Hy-Vee for a full refund.

Symptoms of cyclosporiasis include watery diarrhea (most common), loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, and low-grade fever.

Anyone with questions should contact Hy-Vee Customer Care at 1-800-772-4098.
