Allergy Alert: Undeclared Sulfites in Shad Raisins

Fatima Brothers Inc. (Maspeth, NY) has recalled Shad Raisins due to the presence of sulfites that were not declared on the label. The raisins were distributed in New York City only, in uncoded 7-ounce plastic bags.

The recall was initiated after testing carried out by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets detected the presence of high levels of sulfites in the raisins.

Consumers who are sensitive to sulfites may experience a severe, possibly even life-threatening reaction upon consuming  as little as 10 mg. of sulfites. Individuals who suffer from asthma may be especially at risk.

Individuals who purchased the Shad Raisins should return them to the store for a refund.
