Schramm’s Mead “Elderberry” Recalled

(Michigan Dept. of Agriculture, Jan. 5, 2018)

Ferndale, MI – Schramm’s Mead of Ferndale, MI, is announcing a voluntary recall of 375 ml bottles of “Elderberry.” Since late December 2017, two customers have reported nausea and stomach upset after having consumed “Elderberry.” Out of an abundance of caution, Schramm’s Mead is recommending that customers who have a bottle of Schramm’s Mead “Elderberry” should not consume it. Customers are urged to return bottles to the Schramm’s Mead tasting room at 327 W. Nine Mile, Rd., Ferndale, Michigan for a full refund.

“Elderberry” was released between September 30, 2017 and December 6, 2017. Bottles were sold exclusively from Schramm’s Mead’s tasting room. It is a deep purple mead (honey wine) packaged in clear, 375 ml wine bottles. A two -line bottling date code of “Batch #1, 9/29/2017” appears in black ink on the bottom inch of the bottle.

This is the only batch of “Elderberry” released in bottles by Schramm’s Mead. There were 902 bottles sold.

Production of the product has been suspended while Schramm’s Mead conducts an investigation and laboratory testing in cooperation with Michigan Department of Agriculture.

Consumers with further questions about this mead, or who live outside the metropolitan Detroit area, should email Schramm’s Mead at, or call Alyson Schramm Naeger at 248-439-5000 Extension 2.
