The following milk allergy alert was the FDA on July 31, 2008

The manufacturer of Wegmans Sorbet is recalling a limited number of 16 oz. Wegmans brand Sorbets because they may contain undeclared milk. The products were distributed throughout Wegmans Food Markets located in NY, PA, NJ, VA, and MD.
The sorbets are packaged in 16 oz. paperboard containers and sold in the supermarkets’ ice cream section. All four sorbet flavors: Lemon, Raspberry, Green Apple, and Pink Grapefruit, are affected by this recall. The affected products contain the following "BEST USED BY" date codes on the bottom of the container:

 

"BEST USED BY" codes

Green Apple

OCT 2008; MAR 15,09

Lemon

FEB 11,09

Pink Grapefruit

FEB 11,09

Raspberry

SEP 2008; NOV 2,08; FEB 11,09

A review of records discovered that product containing milk was packaged in cartons that were not labeled for the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the cross contamination was caused by a breakdown in the company's production process, which has been corrected.

Consumers who have purchased Wegmans Sorbet with the affected code dates and flavors may return it to Wegmans for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the manufacturer at 1-800-873-7797 between the hours of 9:00am -5:00pm Monday thru Friday EST.


Ed. note: This product is halachically pareve. This alert is posted for people with milk allergies.
