Schnucks has issued a recall on all bagged red and white seedless grapes sold between noon Sunday and 9:30 a.m. today at its Dardenne Prairie store, located at 3029 Highway K.
The recall was issued after a customer returned a bag of the red seedless grapes containing pieces of glass. It was later learned that the glass came from a light bulb that shattered over a pallet of grapes in the produce backroom cooler, according to a news release issued by Schnucks.
No other stores are involved in the recall.
Customers who purchased bagged seedless grapes from the Dardenne Prairie Schnucks between noon on Sunday and up to 9:30 a.m. today may return the grapes for a refund.
