Recall on Limited Number of Wegman Brand Sorbets


The manufacturer of Wegmans Sorbet is recalling a limited number of 16 oz. Wegmans brand Sorbets because they may contain undeclared milk. People who have an allergy to milk run the risk of a serious or possible life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the affected products listed below. The products were distributed throughout Wegmans Food Markets located in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, and Maryland …

The sorbets are packaged in 16 oz. paperboard containers and sold in the supermarkets’ ice cream section. All four sorbet flavors: Lemon, Raspberry, Green Apple, and Pink Grapefruit, are affected by this recall. The affected products contain the following “BEST USED BY” date codes on the bottom of the container:

“BEST USED BY” codes
Green Apple OCT 2008; MAR 15,09
Lemon FEB 11,09
Pink Grapefruit FEB 11,09
Raspberry SEP 2008; NOV 2,08; FEB 11,09

A review of records discovered that product containing milk was packaged in cartons that were not labeled for the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the cross contamination was caused by a breakdown in the company’s production process, which has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased Wegmans Sorbet with the affected code dates and flavors may return it to Wegmans for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the manufacturer at 1-800-873-7797 between the hours of 9:00am -5:00pm Monday thru Friday EST.
