United Supermarkets Announces Voluntary Recall of Mango Products
An area supermarket has issued a voluntary recall of certain products containing a particular fruit.
United Supermarkets has removed all Mexico-grown mangoes and fresh-cut fruit products containing this type of mango.
The recall is due to the identification of possible salmonella contamination in other parts of the country from these mangoes.
The five fresh-cut fruit products that bear the market street label that are under the recall include the 10-ounce Season Blend, 16-ounce Season Blend, 10-ounce Strawberry Kiwi Mango, 16-ounce Strawberry Kiwi Mango, and 10-ounce Mango Spears.
Customers that purchased any of these products between August 12th and August 28th may return the unused product to any United Supermarkets location for a full refund.
“There is no evidence at this time that any products that have come through our stores were contaminated – we are simply taking every precaution in an effort to protect the welfare of our guests,” said Tommy Wilkins, director of produce procurement for United Supermarkets.
The stores plan to have California-grown mangoes on the shelves later this week.
