According to Wegmans/ Recall turned out to be not needed, we were in contact with Wegmans regarding this recall. We asked them to update information on their website which was done today. We have thanked Wegmans for putting out the alert to keep us safe, when they thought it might have been a problem for our community.

UPDATE ON THIS PRODUCT FROM FAAN!
| FOOD ALLERGY & ANAPHYLAXIS NETWORK SPECIAL FOOD ALLERGY ALERT NOTICE |=--
Peanut Allergy Notice
January 11, 2001
On January 2, Wegmans contacted FAAN requesting that a notice be sent to
our Special Allergy Alert via E-mail list announcing the recall of two code
dates of Wegmans Krinkle Cut Potato Chips. The chips were suspected of
containing an undeclared peanut ingredient. Today, Wegmans has asked that
FAAN issue the following notice:
"Subsequent laboratory analysis by NYS Dept. of Agriculture and Markets and
Wegmans did not detect the presence of any peanut ingredient in Wegmans
Brand Potato Chips. Therefore, there is no cause for concern about this
product."
"We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced due to this.
However, with life-threatening possibilities, we needed to act responsibly
until laboratory results were confirmed."
"If you have any questions, please call Wegmans Consumer Affairs at
1-800-WEGMANS."
