Hy-Vee is recalling multiple chocolate candies because of an ingredient that was possibly contaminated with Salmonella.
The recall has been a domino effect, starting with a milk powder produced by Valley Milk Products LLC. Hy-Vee uses chocolate products from Palmer Candy Company, which gets a chocolate coating ingredient from Valley Milk Products LLC. That chocolate coating ingredient is where the potential brush with Salmonella occurred.
“Out of an abundance of caution Hy-Vee has decided to recall all candy trays that include products in the recall,” read a statement from Hy-Vee.
The recall includes products made between October 20, 2016 and December 9, 2016.
