Recalls & Safety Information
Not only is food safety a concern for Weis Markets, it is a priority from our corporate offices to our warehouses so fresh food is always a guarantee for our customers. We have been serving our community with quality food products since 1912 and we have no interest in stopping. That’s why we let our customers know about recalls when they happen, so you can be sure we are giving you and your family quality food every day.
A food recall is issued to protect the customers from a product or products that have been delivered to stores but are potentially unsafe or harmful to consume or use. A recall is also issued if a product has been labeled incorrectly and/or is packaged incorrectly. This process is initiated by the manufacturer or distributor. As soon as a product is recalled by the manufacturer or by the United States government, our stores are alerted and the product is immediately removed from the shelves.
Check the recall information below to determine if your product is recalled. Discard or return the recalled products to our store for a full refund.
