Heads up if you’ve purchased bagged ice from Wegmans recently. The grocer issued a recall for 18-pound and seven-pound bags of ice sold in New Jersey and Pennsylvania locations, as well as in Virginia and Maryland. Up to 6,000 bags of ice could contain bits of metal that have broken off from the ice machine. So far, no injuries have been associated with the ice, and the problem was discovered during a routine maintenance check, according to the FDA.


Fortunately, if you used your Wegmans Shopper's Club card in the purchase of ice, you'll be called and notified of the recall. If you still have any of the recalled ice (sold between January 1st and June 10th) you can bring it back to the store for a full refund. So before you pour yourself a tall glass of iced tea, check your ice. Or better yet, just bring it to the store and get your money back.

If you have any questions, you can call the Wegmans Consumer Affairs Department at 855-934-3663 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. till 5 p.m.
