Weis Markets is issuing a recall of 30 bakery products including muffins, cookies, shortbread, and baked bread items due to the potential presence of small metal fragments in the sugar topping used on these products.

Foodborne foreign objects that are not hard and sharp and less than or equal to seven millimeters in length may cause minor injuries such as temporary reflexive choking and irritation of the gastrointestinal system. The fragments in the recalled products range in length from two to nine millimeters.

The muffins are packaged in a plastic medium salad container. The loaf bread and cookies are packaged in a plastic-hinged container, and the Irish soda bread is packaged in a plastic bag. The sell-by date can be found at the bottom of the scale label affixed to the packaging. Products included in this recall were distributed in Weis Markets stores.

For a full list of specific products names, UPCs, and sell-by dates affected, see the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) release.

Weis Markets has received no reports of adverse reactions or injuries due to consumption of these products to date.

Consumers who have purchased these items are advised not to consume them and return them to the store where originally purchased.

Consumers with questions should call the Weis Markets Customer Service team at (866) 999-9347.
