Hy-Vee has issued a recall on six meat and potato products after learning of a possible salmonella and listeria contamination.

According to a news release from the company, the products in question are being recalled because they use caramelized mushrooms and fire-roasted tomatoes from McCain Foods, which announced those products are being recalled due to potential contamination. No illness have been reported in connection to the products.

Symptoms of salmonella in healthy adults can include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rarer circumstances, infection with salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, endocarditis and arthritis. The organism can also be fatal in young children, the elderly, and individuals with weak immune systems.

Symptoms of listeria monocytogenes in healthy adults can include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea; however, the organism has been known to cause miscarriages and stillbirths in pregnant women and can also be fatal for children, the elderly, and individuals with weak immune systems.
