Allergy Alert: Wegmans Recalls Tomato Sauce

Wegmans Food Markets has issued a recall notice for Wegmans Italian Classics Seasoned Tomato Sauce (24-ounce size) after a store employee discovered that the sauce contained undeclared milk, according to an FDA news release posted today.

The recalled sauce, which is sold in 24-ounce clear flexible pouches, is labeled with a "use by" date of 11/26/08 and UPC 77890 79010. The sauce was sold in the prepared foods sections of Wegmans stores in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland between Saturday, November 15 and Thursday, November 20.

While no illnesses have been reported so far, individuals who are allergic to milk may experience a severe reaction after consuming this product. Wegmans has invited its customers to return the mislabeled product to the store for a full refund.

Consumers in search of more information on this recall are encouraged to call the company's consumer affairs department at 1-800-WEGMANS, ext. 4760.
