(Shenandoah) -- Shenandoah Hy-Vee Store Director Jason Beal says the list of stores supplied with the tainted fresh pasta salad did not include the Hy-Vee stores in Shenandoah or Clarinda.

And Beal says this is one list that was good to not be included on.

"It's a relief. Obviously in situations like this you just want to make sure we're having safe and healthy product for our customers. That's our main concern."

Yesterday Hy Vee announced that a tainted batch of fresh pasta salad had gotten into their chain. The salad was potentially a threat for Listeria and originated from Inventure Foods in Jefferson, Georgia.

Beal says Hy-Vee's goal is to ensure all products featured are safe to consume.

"We're pretty blessed you know with having 60,000 some products in the store to have one product in our company to have a recall is good that it's that few. Obviously we wish it was zero and obviously we have a lot of controls in place and checks & balances to make sure that we're as safe as we can be. You know that's the main thing for us just to try and make it zero and then if we do happen to have something like that, then we get on top of it as fast as we can for the safety of our customers."

Again, the recalled salad was never shipped to Shenandoah, Clarinda or Red Oak. Click here for a complete list of stores with recalled product.
