Wegmans Soup Recall

Company recalls soup sold at N.J., Pa. Wegmans because of possible plastic contamination

A Fall River, Mass., manufacturer is recalling about 4,100 pounds of soup products after consumers found bits of plastic in the soups.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the products made by Blount Fine Foods were sold at Wegmans supermarkets in Massachusetts, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Wegmans is based in Rochester, N.Y.

The following products, all under the Wegmans Food Markets label, were recalled Wednesday:

  • 16 oz. cups of Chicken and Dumpling Soup with a “use by” date of Aug. 24.
  • 16 oz. cups of Gazpacho Soup with a “use by” date of Sept. 2.
  • 16 oz. cups of Italian Wedding Style Soup with Meatballs, Tomato Basil with Orzo, Caribbean Black Bean and Lobster Bisque, all with a “use by” date of Sept. 3.

All products can be returned for a full refund. More information is available by calling Wegmans Consumer Affairs at 1-800-Wegmans (934-6267).

No injuries were reported.
