Hy-Vee Voluntarily Recalls Two Short Cuts Vegetable Mix Products Because of Possible Health Risk

When a company announces a recall, market withdrawal, or safety alert, the FDA posts the company's announcement as a public service. FDA does not endorse either the product or the company.

Company Announcement Date: November 24, 2020 FDA Publish Date: November 24, 2020 Product Type: Food & Beverages Reason for Announcement:
Potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes
Company Name: Hy-Vee, Inc. Brand Name:

Short Cuts vegetable mix products

Company Announcement

Hy-Vee, Inc., based in West Des Moines, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling two of its Hy-Vee Short Cuts vegetable mix products across its eight-state region (IL, IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, SD, and WI) due to possible contamination with Listeria monocytogenes. The potential for contamination was discovered during routine safety sampling at Hy-Vee’s Short Cuts production facility. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products.

Listeria monocytogenes is an organism, which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria monocytogenes infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.

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

  • Hy-Vee Short Cuts Pot Roast Mix – UPC Code 0272083305352
  • Hy-Vee Short Cuts Grill/Oven Ready Veggie Mix – UPC Code 0272104105992

All affected products have a “Best if Used By” date of Dec. 3, 2020. Photos of the affected product labels are attached. No other Hy-Vee Short Cuts products or products used in Hy-Vee stores are affected by this recall.

Customers who purchased any of these products with these dates should not consume them. Customers are being asked to discard these items or return them to their local Hy-Vee store for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Hy-Vee Customer Care representatives 24 hours a day, seven days a week at (800) 772-4098.

@Mindy D  I have been meaning to tell you how much I appreciate your dedication to keeping us apprised of the latest health information; especially recalls, because I don't visit the websites that you list. Most are not televised by the media, unless it is a national concern.😊


Some of your articles have been VERY valuable to me. I have thrown away bagged salads, and even a spice once, based on the detailed information in several of your threads.


Please know that I THANK YOU with the utmost sincerity!✨



~~~All we need is LOVE💖

@Mindy D   I want to join @Desert Lily and @SandySparkles and I am certain many others in expressing my appreciation for these alerts that you post.


I try and let others of my acquaintances know, as well, since many times we can be unaware of these situations.


Hoping you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and long weekend.
