According to the FDA, Lin’s Waha International has recalling certain batch/lots of Suantianyangmei Waxberry and Bingtangyangmei Waxberry because they contain undeclared Sulfites and Cyclamates. People who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume these products. Cyclamate is an unapproved ingredient. You should neither serve nor consume the recalled Waxberry products identified above.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by 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 and Cyclamates in these products, two ingredients not declared on the product labels.

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 Suantianyangmei Waxberry and Bingtangyangmei Waxberry revealed they contained undeclared Sulfites 13.88 milligrams and 12.85 milligrams per serving, respectively.
