Hy-Vee recalls six trail mix products
WEST DES MOINES, IA- Hy-Vee, based in Des Moines, IA, is recalling six trail mix products including Berry, Caramel Cashew Honey Crunch, Dark Chocolate Cranberry, Mountain, and Santa Fe styles. The recall is due to a possible listeria monocytogenes contamination.
