Korica Brand Dried Plums Recalled Due to Undeclared Sulfites

Comments Off

Domega Internationanl Ltd., in conjunction with the FDA, is recalling Korica Brand Dried Plums because the product may contain undeclared sulfites. The recalled product was sold in 6 oz. plastic jars and were sold only in the state of New York.

Consumers who eat this product and are sensitive to sulfites can run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions. The consumption of 10 or more milligrams of sulfites in a serving has been shown to give sever reactions to some people with asthma. Also, anaphylactic shock is possible for some people who consume more than 10 milligrams of sulfites and are sensitive to sulfites.

The recall was initiated 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 KORICA BRAND DRIED PLUM which did not declare sulfites on the labels.

SO far there have not been any illnesses reported to Domega Int. or the FDA. The product was produced in China,
