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 by the Department’s Food Laboratory Personnel revealed the presence of Sulfites in the product, which were not declared on the label.

The consumption of 10 mg 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 mg or more of the allergen. Analysis of the Fruits Du Sud Golden Seedless Raisins revealed they contained 16 mg per serving.
