Allergy Alert: Dried Sweet Potato

January 8, 2009

Domega International Ltd., Inc. (Brooklyn, NY) has recalled Guangdayuan brand Dried Sweet Potato due to the presence of undeclared sulfites in the product.

The product is sold in an un-coded clear 200 gram vacuum packed plastic bag. The Dried Sweet Potato is a product of China and was distributed across the United States.

The recall came after the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets detected sulfites in a sample of the product as part of a routine testing program. Consumption of sulfite-containing food can cause severe allergy-like symptoms in sensitive individuals.

Consumers who purchased Guangdayuan brand Dried Sweet Potato should return it to the retailer for a refund.
