Epicurean Butter Recalls “Wegmans Lemon Dill Finishing Butter” Because of Possible Health Risk
Epicurean Butter LLC of Thornton, CO, is recalling its 3.5-ounce tubs of " Wegmans Lemon Dill Finishing Butter" food due to a recall from our frozen dill supplier, SupHerb Farms, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Although healthy individuals may suffer only short-term symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, Listeria infection can cause miscarriages and stillbirths among pregnant women.
The recalled "Wegmans Lemon Dill Finishing Butter " were distributed at Wegmans Food Markets in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Virginia, North Carolina, and Washington DC.
The product comes in a 3.5-ounce, black plastic cup with a Wegmans label around and on the lid. The cup has a sealed lidding film under the lid. There is a “Best By” and Lot # printed with blue ink by the label around the cup. The following products are subject to this recall.
These are the ONLY lots affected by this recall.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
Epicurean Butter LLC received notice from its herb supplier that certain lots of frozen dill could potentially be contaminated with listeria based upon a test from one of the supplier’s food manufacturing customers in Canada that used the ingredient in one of their finished products.
Consumers who have purchased 3.5-ounce packages of "Wegmans Lemon Dill Finishing Butter" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 303-427-5527, Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm Mountain Time Zone (MST).
