Hy-Vee, Inc., said that 12 more varieties of its bagged salads are being recalled from all of its stores as part of an ongoing outbreak of cyclospora illnesses in the upper midwest United States. The Food and Drug Administration had previously only recalled the company’s garden salad products.

The company said that customers should dispose of the salad immediately or return them to the store for a full refund.
The salad mixes were sold in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
Symptoms usually develop after about a week, and can manifest as diarrhea, loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps, bloating, gas, nausea, and fatigue. Vomiting, body aches, headache, and fever are also possible symptoms, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
