    Thanks for the recall info everyone! I'll make a post for it. Really sad to see such a big recall involving veggies. :-(

    RAESMOM1612 re chicken fried rice recall (Taipai & innovasian). I wonder if this is tied in with the recent frozen vegetable recall that Trader Joe's had? This makes me suspicious about the vegetable one, too. I'm going to take all of mine back to HT. I have chicken fried rice and vegetable fried rice.

    Taipei chicken fried rice has been added to the recall.....another phone call from HT just now

    Just got a call from HT about a recall on the Innovasian chicken fried rice. With the coupons we've had and the sale/SD's I'm sure some of us have this in our freezers. I have vegetable fried rice in the freezer, wonder if I should take it back/toss it.....

    Anyone had issues w/ Food Lion purchases not getting credited on SavingStar? My sister shops in Lumberton, and none of her FL purchases (plus those of her friends who also shop there) are getting picked up by SavingStar. I'm wondering if it's the store not transmitting the info to SS or if SS is not working w/ FL anymore. I wanted to ask y'all before contacting SS about it. Thanks!

    Just got e-mail from Pinchme telling me that since I didn't qualify for samples on this sample Tuesday, they were sending me a coupon code to get a free year long subscription to a magazine. I decided to log in to my pinchme account anyway just to make sure I didn't have any samples, AND I was able to snag 3 samples. So, moral of the story, verify everything! Don't just believe the email. Also, don't forget to check your pinchme account if you haven't already!
