One chain of supermarket stores is removing a popular American summertime side dish from the shelves because it may carry a potentially harmful pathogen.

Out of an excess of caution, Hy-Vee has recalled their potato salad following a "presumptive positive microbiological finding" from one of the production lines where the potatoes were processed.

Although it's unclear if the bacterium sample discovered was alive or dead, the finding indicates that listeria has been detected. There were numerous variations of potato salad, all of which could be contaminated.

All Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin Hy-Vee locations, including the Hy-Vee Drugstore and Dollar Fresh Markets, are affected by the recall.

If you're worried that you could have one or more in your refrigerator, check the dates on the package—they expire between July 31 and August 4, 2022.

As of July 12, there have been no reports of any illnesses or complaints. Elderly people or those with compromised immune systems are more vulnerable to listeria.

However, if you're expecting, it can be particularly worrisome because the bacteria has been linked to serious consequences for infected unborn children, including the possibility of stillbirth.

Listeria can cause stomach problems such as fever, vomiting, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain. It's crucial to call a doctor as soon as possible if you suspect you may have eaten food contaminated with the listeria bacterium.

While ice cream is another summertime pleasure that might make you sick, potato salad may be a popular go-to side.
