Lubbock United Supermarkets remove possible contaminated mangoes

All Lubbock United Supermarkets, including Market Streets and Amigos, have removed Mexico-grown mangoes and five fresh cut products containing mangoes from their shelves because of salmonella contamination in other parts of the country.

United Supermarket marketing director Eddie Owens says the mangoes were removed Tuesday morning from all the stores. "We do not have tainted mangoes. We pulled them as a precautionary matter," Owens said.

Owens says if you have bought any whole mangoes or any of the five fresh cut fruit products between August 12th and August 28th you can return the unused products to any United Supermarket locations for a full refund. While Owens says there is no salmonella contamination in Lubbock, he says it is better to be safe and not eat these products if you bought them during that time period.

Federal health officials in Canada initially announced a recall of Mexico-grown mangoes sold in Western Canada under the Daniella brand and bearing the PLU number 4959. Other supermarket chains in the U.S. have since announced similar precautionary recalls.

Here are the five fresh cut fruit products containing mangoes removed from shelves:

  • · 10-ounce Season Blend (UPC # 0-77815-00107-2),
  • · 16-ounce Season Blend (UPC # 0-77815-00106-5),
  • · 10-ounce Strawberry Kiwi Mango (UPC # 0-778915-0016-4),
  • · 16-ounce Strawberry Kiwi Mango (UPC # 0-77815-00115-7),
  • · 10-ounce Mango Spears (UPC # 0-77815-00117-1).

 Owens says they expect to have California grown mangoes available in stores by Thursday.

So far these Mexico grown, salmonella contaminated mangoes have popped up in California making close to 80 people sick, as well in Canada affecting 22 people.
