Wegmans Recalls Lemons, Oranges Over Listeria Concerns


Wegmans has announced a recall of some oranges and lemons over fears they may be contaminated with listeria.

These are the affected produced items, which were sold between July 21 and Aug. 7 in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, and Brooklyn and Harrison, NY:

—Wegmans 4lb Bag Valencia Oranges – UPC: 7789052363
—Wegmans 2lb Bag Lemons – UPC: 7789015917
—Wegmans bulk lemons – UPC: 4033

The lemons and oranges were supplied to Wegmans by Freshouse Produce LLC of Salisbury, NC, which issued a voluntary recall after the company’s internal testing identified Listeria monocytogenes on a piece of equipment in one of its packing facilities. No illnesses associated with this recall have been reported to Wegmans or its supplier.

Customers should return these products to the service desk for a full refund. Those with questions may contact Wegmans Food Markets 1-855-934-3663 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m. or Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
