PEEKAY INTERNATIONAL INC. ISSUES ALLERGY ALERT ON UNDECLARED SULFITES IN SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS


The US FDA has issued a press release to confirm that PEEKAY INTERNATIONAL INC. is recalling SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS because they may contain undeclared sulfites. People who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.
The recalled SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS are packaged in uncoded, clear plastic bags in 7.0 oz and 14.0 oz sizes. They were sold in the Brooklyn and Queens areas of New York City.
The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by food laboratory personnel revealed the presence of undeclared sulfites in SWAN GOLDEN RAISINS in 7.0 oz and 14.0 oz packages which did not declare sulfites 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 sulfites sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
