The United Family of Stores pulled all Happy Apple Brand Caramelized Apples from shelves following a recent outbreak of Listeria stemming from prepackaged caramel apples linked to 7 deaths and assured no contaminated apples are in stock.
United is gearing up for the holidays with sale items that include Egg Beaters and Simply Potatoes. Great recipes are also inside the current sale ad, as well as other great deals including pork butt roast on sale at $1.47 / lb.
Hawkins reminds listeners that if apples are not going to be eaten right away, they should be stored in the refrigerator, which stops the ripening process and keeps them crisp. If stored on the counter top apples will ripen 7-10 times faster.
Eddie Owens from United Supermarkets appeared on the Tuesday edition of Lubbock's First News to discuss the newest store openings with The United Family and United taking over the operation of four Albertsons stores.
