Allergy Alert: Dried Apricots Recalled in UK

December 31, 2008

The Health Store has recalled a batch of its own brand of Whole, Dried Apricots due to the presence of undeclared sulphites in the fruit, according to an Allergy Alert released by the UK Food Standards Agency.

The recalled The Health Store brand Whole, Dried Apricots are sold in 500g packages labeled with a Best before date of 13 June 2009 and Batch code 40 259.

While most individuals will not experience any adverse effects from eating this batch of apricots, people who are sensitive to sulphites may suffer severe – possibly life-threatening – allergy-like symptoms after consuming even a small quantity of the recalled apricots.

Consumers who purchased Batch code 40 259 of the Whole, Dried Apricots should check with the store for instructions.
