Allergy Alert: Spiced Prawns with Sulfites

An Oregon company is recalling 194 cases (873 lbs) of spiced prawns because they contain undeclared sulfites.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume them. There are no reports of any allergic reactions to the product.

The recall is for production within the last 180 days. Sulfites were declared on the raw ingredient’s label, but were not carried over to the finished product’s label on Nate’s Spiced Prawn. A recent change in supplier of prawns resulted in the labeling oversight. 

Pacific Oyster Company of Bay City, OR, distributed Nate’s Spiced Prawns to retailers in Oregon and Washington in 16 oz. glass jars (6 oz. drained weight). The UPC number is 0 27241 40069 7. The sell by dates are 11/17/2011, 12/14/2011, 12/28/2011, 1/7/2012, 1/26/2012, 2/15/2012, 3/9/2012, 4/4/2012, and 4/25/2012.  

Consumers may return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 503-905-4467 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (Pacific time).
