Wegmans recalls pumpkin rolls because of plastic

    Wegmans is recalling a batch of pumpkin rolls because the baked goods may contain pieces of clear plastic from the packaging.

    The western New York grocery chain says Wednesday it’s undertaking the voluntary recall following complaints by customers.

    The plastic may be sharp and present a choking hazard.

    The bakery pumpkin rolls were sold between Sept. 1 and Tuesday in all of Wegmans Food Markets’ 81 stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland and Massachusetts. Packages contained whole rolls, half rolls or two slices. All are being recalled.

    Wegmans customers can get a refund at the service desk.
