Allergen Alert: Dried Potato With Sulfites

Strong America Ltd. is recalling a dried potato product imported from China that may contain sulfites, which are not listed on the label.

According to the notice, the recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites in the product which were not declared on the label.

The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfite sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites. Analysis of the “Dried Potato” revealed that it contained 36 milligrams per serving.

No adverse reactions have been reported.

The recalled dried potato is packed in 6 oz. packages under the brand name Golden Smell and was sold in NY, MA and PA. 

Consumers can return the recalled product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-628-6200.
