Contracting listeria normally leads to only minor and/or short-term symptoms. Symptoms such as fever, headaches, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea. The concern is when it comes to those that are young, elderly, have weakened immune systems, or are pregnant. For the young, elderly, and those with weakened immune systems, listeria can be fatal. For expecting mothers, listeria can lead to miscarriages and stillbirths.

Only the above mentioned products are being recalled by Hy-Vee. If you’ve purchased the recalled vegetable mixes, you should throw them out or return them to your retailer for a refund.
