Wegmans Easter Bread Recall

April 22, 2014

TWIN TIERS (WENY) --  Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of all their Easter Bread, almost 30 thousand of them, because the packaging label didn't say it contained egg. 
     According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Wegmans Easter Bread (braided loaf) 17 oz., UPC 77890 32431 (all code dates) is included in a voluntary recall. 
     A Wegmans baker noticed the label error and reported the absence of the allergy advisory. The Easter Bread is a braided loaf with drizzled white frosting. It's in clear plastic and sold in the bakery department.  The bread was produced and sold exclusively in 83 Wegmans stores around the east coast.
     There haven't been any reports of illness, but those with egg allergies should be aware. Concerned customers should return the product to Wegmans for a full refund. Customers who have consumed the product and feel they are experiencing symptoms should contact their physician.
