Wegmans has recalled five separate products in four days because of potential health risks.
On Tuesday, Oct. 30, the popular grocer, which opened a store in Columbia in June, recalled three gluten-free baking mixes because the products may have contained soy. The three products are Wegmans glutenfree chocolate cake mix, its gluten-free honey cornbread mix, and its all-purpose baking mix.
According to a news release, Wegmans began offering the chocolate cake mix for sale in May, and began selling the other two mixes in September.
The mixes were available at 80 of its 81 retail stores in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
Wegmans said no illnesses have been reported as a result of the recall.
On the following day, Wednesday, Wegmans issued a recall of its pumpkin roll, which went on sale Sept. 1.
According to the news release, the product may have contained pieces of clear plastic from the packaging, which may be sharp or could present a choking hazard.
The recall pertains to all three sizes of the product, which comes in a whole roll, half roll, and two slices.
Wegmans initiated the recall following complaints that plastic was found in the baked good.
On Friday, the grocer also recalled its Organic Salad and Spring Mix because it may be affected by E. coli bacteria.
The recall will cover 5-ounce and 11-ounce packages sold between Oct. 14 and Thursday, and Wegmans is advising consumers who still have the product in their refrigerators to throw the salad out and visit a store service desk for a full refund.
Both the Pumpkin Roll and the Organic Salad and Spring Mix were sold at all 81 Wegmans locations.
