In a statement issued on Tuesday 13th June the Management of One Mart Supermarket assured its customers that it did not have in stock any of the recently recalled pasta products from the Chicago based Conagra Brands.
On June 9th, Conagra Brands, Inc. announced that it was recalling approximately 717,338 pounds of spaghetti and meatball products due to misbranding and undeclared allergens. It was explained that the recalled product(s) contains milk, a known allergen that is not declared on the product label.
As a result of the recall One Mart, which stocks some Conagra products announced that it does not have any of the affected cases of Chef Boyardee Mini Pasta Shells and Mini Meatballs or any of the private label Spaghetti and Meatballs that are being recalled in its store.
“One Mart immediately went on the alert and commissioned an inventory of our products, to ensure that we were not carrying any of these products,” the supermarket’s Operations Manager, Marcia Stoutt announced.
She added: “As a major supermarket in the Virgin Islands, which also supplies grocery stores and provisions yachts, we remain on the alert for these kinds of issues. We are committed to doing everything we can to take remedial action, should any situation arise that could negatively affect our reputation as a trusted shopping centre for our valued customers.”
