The recalled pepper mills contain a metal grinding mechanism that lets off metal "shards" for the first 10 grinds, posing a laceration hazard.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled pepper mills and return them to Wegmans for a full refund. Wegmans is directly contacting consumers who purchased the recalled pepper mills.
