"If customers have this product at home, we would like them to discard it. And then when they visit our store, they should keep track of what they discarded if it's peaches or a dessert. Visit our service desk and let us know how much was discarded, and we'll gladly give them a refund," said Jo Natale, Wegmans' media director.
The FDA has been notified of the recall, and reported that there have not been any known cases of sickness due to the products.
