More and more customers are living with food allergies. Our Nature’s Marketplace department offers a variety of products specifically formulated to meet the needs of customers with food allergies. Ingredients and product formulations can change, so we encourage our customers to always read the labels of products to ensure that an allergen label has not been added or removed since their last purchase.
Allergen Labeling on Packaged Foods
The most common food allergens in the U.S.—the "top 8"—cause 90% of all severe food allergies. The top 8 allergens include Milk, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Shellfish, Wheat and Soy. The FDA requires that the top 8 be listed in plain language on the package when present in a food. Many Wegmans brand products also highlight the allergen statement with our Allergen Wellness Key making it easy to spot products that have a top 8 allergen.
Foods Prepared in our Stores
We cannot guarantee that foods prepared in the store would be free of food allergens. With these items, there is a risk of cross contact with allergens due to shared preparation areas.
