About Sulphite/Sulfite Allergies:
For some people, sulphites are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention and treatment. In addition, those with Asthma or other respiratory problems may require immediate attention for serious and life-threatening breathing difficulties.

If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
