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

  • Chilean Mushrooms, available for sale from November 1, 2014 to December 20, 2014

Please consult the photograph above for details of the food’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the FDA, the recall was initiated after routine sampling by the New York State Department Of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors. Subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites in these Chilean mushrooms. There was no label on these Mushrooms stating that they contained sulfites.

The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some people with Asthma. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfite sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites. Analysis of the recalled Chilean Mushrooms revealed a sulfite level in excess of 10 milligrams per serving.

==> For information about Sulfite/Sulphite Allergy, please consult the “Allergens & Intolerances” tab on this site, located at the top of this page.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession these recalled Mushrooms and could be allergic to their sulfite ingredients, have a close family member who is allergic or has previously experienced Anaphylaxis or are unsure of your allergy status, please do not consume them. Instead, return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
