Wegmans has issued a recall for two varieties of Food You Feel Good About Organic juices because they may contain unacceptable levels of a byproduct of mold.
The 64 oz Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Apple Juice and Wegmans Food You Feel Good About Organic Cranberry Juice Blend are being recalled.
The Wegmans supplier says that the products contain apple juice concentrate that was found to have an unacceptable level of patulin, a by-product of mold. Only bottles with the specific expiration dates have been recalled.
The apple juice has expiration dates of Jan. 28, 2014 through March 19, 2014. The blend has an expiration date of Nov. 5, 2013. Check the Wegmans website for more information.
Although the risk of illness is remote, consumers are advised to dispose of the juice and bring the empty container back to the service desk for a full refund.
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.
