EPA Recognizes Wegmans As Safer Choice Retailer

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recognized Wegmans Food Markets as an outstanding Safer Choice Retailer for the fourth year in a row.

Wegmans earned the citation for fostering awareness of the Safer Choice program and committing to offer cleaning products that meet its standards, the supermarket operator noted. It carries a line of Wegmans brand cleaning products made with safer ingredients in addition to several national brand products bearing the Safer Choice logo.

“We’re committed to offering effective cleaning products that are Safer Choice-certified whenever possible because we believe it’s the right thing to do,” said Dave Tantillo, Wegmans category merchant. “Because Safer Choice makes it easy for consumers to find cleaning products that are safer for them, their families, and the environment, it is the seal of approval we want our customers to know, understand and trust.”
