60% of Americans are planning to grill out on Independence Day with classics like burgers and hotdogs being some of the most popular menu items. The protein might be the main event, but the sides you serve are also super important.

One of the largest grocery chains in the upper Midwest sent a press release late Friday afternoon to say it was yanking a popular side dish from its shelves. Hy-Vee is urging consumers to avoid eating it so be careful when attending holiday BBQs this weekend. Get the details and check the product info below.

"Customers who have purchased any of these products are urged not to consume the product and dispose of it or return it to their local Hy-Vee for a full refund."

See the full list of products you shouldn't eat at your 4th of July BBQ below.

If you did purchase the popular side dish from Hy-Vee, the grocery store is asking you to throw it away or return it for a full refund.

The products have been pulled from stores "due to a presumptive positive microbial result."

This is what the product packaging looks like.
