Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. has initiated a recall of Wegmans Original Killer Brownies with Pecans, because the product may contain peanuts, not declared on the label.    People who have an allergy to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Wegmans Original Killer Brownies with Pecans (best-by dates 03/21/17 through 4/5/17 only) with UPC number:20818400000 were sold between 3/16 and 4/1/17.  The product is sold prepackaged by the pound in a plastic clamshell, or individually on the cookie bar, in the Bakery Department in only 15 Wegmans stores (listed below) in these areas of New York State:

This product is produced by Killer Brownie Distributing, Ltd. in Dayton, Ohio.  The recall was initiated when a Wegmans employee reported that some cases received from the manufacturer were labelled incorrectly:  the cases were labeled ‘Original Brownies with Pecans,’ but actually contained ‘Peanut Butter Brownies.’

Approximately 612 lbs. of the product were received from the manufacturer incorrectly labeled.    Wegmans recovered approximately 365 lbs. either removed from sale or still in inventory; the remainder was sold to customers.  Wegmans placed automated phone calls to customers, who purchased the packaged product using their Shoppers Club card, to alert them to the recall.

There have been no reported injuries or illnesses associated with this recall.

Concerned customers should return the product to Wegmans for a full refund.  Customers who have consumed the product and feel they are experiencing symptoms should contact their physician.
