Dangerous product alert: Wegamans ice might contain metal

Summer fun is upon us. That means that people are going to be grabbing bags of ice to keep soft drinks, foods and other beverages cold despite the heat. While purchasing ice might seem like something that is a minor purchase, it actually isn't always safe. Washington, District of Columbia, residents might like to know about a recent recall involving Wegmans bagged ice.

Bagged ice that was sold in some local Wegmans stores could possibly contain bits of metal. While no injuries have reported yet, consumers should be aware of this problem. The bags of ice were sold in stores this year from January 1 through June 10. Stores around D.C., including those in Maryland and Pennsylvania, were affected by the recall.

The voluntary recall became necessary when it was determined that the small bits of metal from a broken machine used during production could be in the bags. The dangerous product issue was discovered during routine maintenance. The company estimates that around 6,000 bags of ice sold during that time frame might have been affected. Customers who shop with a Shoppers Club card who purchased bags of ice will be alerted by the company.

Anyone who has bags of ice that are affected by this recall, including 7-pound or 18-pound bags, can return the bags to a Wegmans for a full refund. Wegmans says that there haven't been any injuries reported from this issue, but with the possible choking hazard, consumers should know that they do have rights to seek compensation if they are injured by this recalled ice.
