Wegmans Recalls Some Of Its Organic Fruit Juices

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — Wegmans Food Markets says it’s recalling two fruit juice products because they may contain unacceptable levels of a byproduct of mold.

The grocery chain says some 64 oz. containers of Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Apple Juice and Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Cranberry Juice Blend may contain patulin. It says the substance is unlikely to cause illness, but shouldn’t be consumed.

The apple juice has expiration dates of Jan. 28, 2014 through March 19, 2014. The blend has an expiration date of Nov. 5, 2013.

Wegmans announced the recall Thursday after supplier Clement Pappas & Co. notified it the substance was found in apple juice concentrate.

It says consumers should dump the juice and return the containers to stores for refunds.

Wegmans has 81 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts.
