Wegman’s Grocery Chain Recalls In-Store Made Bagels: Concern Bagels May Contain Pieces of a Metal Spring

The FDA yesterday issued a warning to Consumers concerning a voluntary recall by Wegmans Food Markets, Inc., of “all varieties of its in-store made bagels and bialys (flattened bagels with various toppings, i.e. pizza) sold in the bakery and purchased between August 24 and September 9, 2008.” See the Complete FDA Warning Here.

Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is a 71-store supermarket chain with stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, and Maryland.

The recall was initiated “because the bagels may contain pieces of a metal spring from a mixer that entered the dough, which is produced at Wegmans’ Central Bakeshop in Rochester, posing a possible choking hazard..” Wegmans estimates that “approximately 1,011 cases of potentially affected bagels were produced …”

If you or someone you know has suffered an injury as a result of purchasing a bagel that is the subject of the FDA’s recall, please immediately contact our law-firm for a free consultation.
