What’s the problem?

The recalled products were sold in the produce department of Wegmans Food Markets between 12/7 and 12/18/18, in the following states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and Massachusetts.

The recall was initiated after a supplier of Wegmans informed the company of the potential E. coli contamination, FDA said. Wegmans subsequently placed automated phone calls to customers who purchased the product using their Shoppers Club card.

If you purchased any products included in this recall, you should either discard them immediately or return them to the point of purchase for a full refund. Customers with additional questions should contact Wegmans Consumer Affairs department Monday thru Friday, between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Eastern time.

E. Coli Symptoms

Signs and symptoms of E. coli infection typically begin to present 3 to 4 days after exposure to the bacteria, and may include:

  • Diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping, pain or tenderness
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting

To date, no E. coli infections or other illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall, FDA said.
