According to the FDA, the recall was initiated after routine sampling by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis of the product by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of undeclared Sulfites in Peony Mark Brand Dried Lily Flower in packages that did not declare Sulfites on the label.
It should be noted that the consumption of ten (10) milligrams of Sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some people with Asthma. Further, Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain Sulfite sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of Sulfites.
