Wegman’s Spring Water Recalled Amid Concerns Over E. Coli
Wegman’s Food Market Inc. has announced a recall for certain bottled Spring Water, due to concerns that some may be contaminated with E.coli, a serious and potentially life-threatening bacteria that may cause severe stomach cramping and illness.
A Wegmans spring water recall was announced on June 20, for bottles labeled “Food You Feel Good About (FYFGA)”. The recall was issued after the manufacturer, Niagara Bottling, warned of the potential presence of E. coli in some samples.
To date, the company claims no cases of E. coli food poisoning has been linked to the Wegman’s bottled water, but the product is being removed from store shelves and consumers are asked to stop drinking it immediately.

The Wegman’s recall includes 16.9 oz. bottles with UPC number 7789018860, 16.9 oz. 12 pack bottles with UPC number 7789010085, 16.9 oz. 24 pack bottles with UPC number 7789028768, and 16.9 oz. 35 pack bottles with UPC number 7789029365. All of the recalled packages of water contain “Best by” dates from June 10, 2016 to June 18, 2016.
For healthy individuals, E. Coli will typically cause mild to severe diarrhea and abdominal cramps, bloody stools, and sometimes minor fevers lasting between five and 10 days. Individuals such as young children or the sick and elderly may be affected more because of a weakened immune system where the contamination could lead to a condition called Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome (HUS) which could lead to kidney failure and even death.
The potentially contaminated bottled water was manufactured by Niagara Bottling LLC of Ontario, California where Wegman’s Food Market Inc. distributed them throughout the U.S. in stores. Wegman’s announced that only stores in New York State, Massachusetts, and Erie, Pennsylvania received the 12- pack bottles.
Wegman’s is asking customers to check the date codes and UPC numbers for the recalled bottled water, and to return the product to any store for a full refund. Customers with further questions may contact Wegman’s Consumer Affairs toll-free at 1-855-934-3663.
