Removing fruits from fermenter

Are there any dangers to this? Obviously I’ll need sterilized equipment (thinking about using a strainer to scoop out my lemon wedges), but are there any unnecessary risks this could pose?

You’ll aerate the beer if you use a strainer. Why remove the fruit, though? Just rack off it instead.

my only reservation about racking is that I just put it in the primary last night. I realized too late that I didn’t want the lemon wedges in there whole (learned a little something about the pith). So here I am.

If it’s been less than 24 hours, you can use the strainer - the yeast are still in O2 uptake mode.

Outstanding. Thank you.
