Hy-Vee is voluntarily recalling five meat products and one potato item due to possible contamination with Salmonella and Listeria.
The fresh, not frozen, products include Hy-Vee bacon-wrapped cowgirl chicken grillers (8 oz. each), Hy-Vee Cowgirl chicken griller patty (6 oz.), Hy-Vee gourmet steakhouse mushroom & Swiss burger (6 oz.) Hy-Vee ground beef sliders mushroom & Swiss (2 oz. or 12 count 30 oz.) and Hy-Vee Fire-roasted tomato, spinach, mozzaella twice baked potato (5 oz.).

No illnesses have been reported to date, according to Hy-Vee.
The potential for contamination stems from caramelized mushrooms and fire-roasted tomatoes from McCain Foods, a Hy-Vee supplier. Healthy people affected by Salmonella experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. It can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or the elderly.
