SUNNY LAKE TRADING ISSUES ALERT ON UNDECLARED SULFITES IN DRIED POTATO

Sunny Lake Trading, Inc., 651A Lexington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY, is recalling Dried Potato because it may contain undeclared sulfites. People who have severe sensitivity to

sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled Dried Potato, sold in six-ounce, clear, uncoded plastic bags, was sold in the Brooklyn, NY area.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors and subsequent analysis of the product by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites in packages of Dried Potato that did not have sulfites declared on the label. The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfite-sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

Consumers who have purchased Dried Potato should return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-453-3838.
