Fruit of Wolfberry Recall [US]

US FDA RecallUS/Silver Spring: S&M Enterprise recalls some Fruit of Wolfberry due to undeclared sulfites, a known allergen. FDA: http://ht.ly/qZDVp

Direct link: http://www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm375312.htm

Additional information:
The US Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) reports the following Foods are subject to this recall:

  • Fruit of Wolfberry, sold in 12-ounce plastic bag packages and distributed in retail stores in New York.

According to the FDA, the recall was initiated after it was discovered by NYDSAM that the sulfites-containing product was distributed in packages that did not reveal the presence of sulfites. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by lack of supplier’s knowledge about sulfites declaration on packages.

About Sulfite Allergies:
For some people, sulfites 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.
