For Immediate Release

1-(866) 999-9347, option 5
Weis Markets today announced it has expanded its recall for its store-made Weis Quality Dried Beef Party Rye dip for failing to list egg and milk allergens on its label. Food allergies are an immune system reaction that occurs soon after eating a food containing an allergen. Even a tiny amount of the allergy-causing food can trigger signs and symptoms such as digestive problems, hives or swollen airways. In some people, a food allergy can cause severe symptoms or even a life-threatening reaction known as anaphylaxis.
This product was sold in eleven Weis Markets’ stores including most of its Binghamton NY area stores. The dip was also sold in its two Williamsport PA stores located on River Avenue and Lycoming Creek Road and its Hazleton PA store. This recall is being issued as a precaution. The sell by dates affected are 2/15/18 through 3/11/18. The issue was discovered during a routine inspection. Customers may return the product for a full refund.
There have been no reports of allergic reactions related to the consumption of this product to date. Other than the listed stores, no other Weis Markets’ store is included in this recall. Customers seeking additional information can call 1-(866) 999-9347, option 5. Mon-Fri, 8am to 5pm EST.
