LUBBOCK (March 7, 2014) — United Supermarkets, LLC (United) is not involved in the voluntary raw beef recall by Rancho Feeding Corporation, company officials said.
“We have never purchased any products from Rancho Feeding Corporation,” said Scott Nettles, senior director of perishables for United Supermarkets, LLC. “Our guests have no need to worry about any raw beef product purchased from any of our stores,” Nettles added.
The Rancho Feeding recall earlier resulted in a voluntary recall by Nestle of its Philly Steak and Cheese flavored Hot Pockets after it discovered a supplier had bought meat from Rancho Feeding. United stores immediately removed all those Hot Pockets products from its shelves on Feb. 17 without incident.
