Euphoria Fancy Food Inc. of Brooklyn, New York, is recalling its 500-gram packages of “Tainy Vostoka Assorted Dry Fruits-Apple” because they contain sulfites, which are not properly declared on the label.
According to the recall notice posted on the FDA’s website, people with a sensitivity to sulfites should not consume the recalled product described below:
|Product Name||Size||Code(s) on Product||UPC|
|Tainy Vostoka Assorted Dry Fruits-Apple||500g||21 01 19 SS||4605932006197|
The recall was triggered 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 500gram packages of “Tainy Vostoka Assorted Dry Fruits-Apple,” 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.
The recalled product can be returned to the store where it was purchased for a full refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 718-768-3400.
