United Supermarkets unaffected by produce recall

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

United Supermarkets told KCBD Monday that its grocery stores are not affected by any of the recently announced produce recalls of cantaloupe, honeydew melons and romaine lettuce.

"The cantaloupes and honeydews being recalled are from North Carolina and Indiana, while ours are locally grown or from California," said Eddie Owens, United Supermarkets' Director of Communications. "The romaine lettuce bears the T&A label grown by Tanimura and Antle, and ours is from Dole, and Growers Express under the Green Giant label."

Health officials are investigating several midwestern and east-coast farms, distributors and retailers after an outbreak of salmonella that, as of Friday, had killed two and sickened at least 141 people nationwide was linked to cantaloupe grown in southwestern Indiana.

A single lot of romaine lettuce shipped to 19 states, Canada and Puerto Rico has also been recalled due to possible E. coli contamination.
