Time to check your fridge and freezer to see if you have any of the products in this new voluntary recall issued by Hy-Vee and announced by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). These products could be contaminated with salmonella or listeria organisms which can cause serious or even fatal illnesses in young kids, the frail or elderly, and people with compromised immunity.

The list of unpleasant symptoms ranges from fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, to severe headaches and more. At this point in time, no illnesses have been reported, but "out of an abundance of caution" Hy-Vee is recalling 6 meat and potato items from all of their stores across their eight-state region.
