Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recalled in Seven States

West Haven, CT (SafetyAlerts) - Cosmo's Food Products is recalling several brands of sun-dried tomatoes because they contain undeclared sulfites.

The tomatoes were sold in 8-ounce jars under the Cosmo's, Ciro and Famoso labels and in 7-ounce jars under the Dal Raccolta label. All lot codes are being recalled, the company said.

Cosmo's said the recall was launched after it was discovered that some labels did not state that the product contained sulfites. Sulfites pose a serious allergy risk to some people, although no illnesses have been reported, the company said.

The tomatoes were sold in retail stores in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Maryland, the District of Columbia, Massachusetts and possibly in Pennsylvania, officials said.

Consumers can return the tomatoes to the store where they were purchased for refunds. Those with questions can call Cosmo's at 1-203-933-9323.
