Hy-Vee Cheesecake Recall Announcement – Hy-Vee, Inc. is recalling its cheesecakes made with Diamond Crystal Brands’ cheesecake mix because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis, arthritis, and death. Infection with Salmonella is also referred to as Salmonellosis. To learn more about Salmonella, please see About Salmonella.
