Allergy Alert: Undeclared Sulfites in Dried Radishes

JFC International, Inc. (Los Angeles, CA) has announced a recall of Kyosai Sengiri Daikon brand Dried Radishes due to the presence of undeclared sulfites.

The recalled item – a product of China – is packaged in 3.5-ounce clear plastic packages, carrying UPC 0 11152 42327 2, and is distributed nationally. No lot number or date code information was provided in the recall notice. Consumers, therefore, should assume that the recall covers all lots and date codes of the dried radishes.

JFC initiated the recall after the Florida State Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Division of Food Safety found sulfites in a sample of the product. While sulfites are a permitted food ingredient if declared on the label, consumers who are sensitive to sulfites may suffer a severe reaction upon eating an item that contains this chemical.

Consumers who purchased the recalled item are urged to return it to the store for a refund. For more information, contact JFC at 323-887-5232.
