Golden Dynasty Trading Has Recalled "Sweet Potato"

New York, NY (SafetyAlerts) - New York State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers warned sulfite-allergic consumers and asthmatics to avoid eating Jin Hua Int'l Trading Inc. "Sweet Potato" due to the presence of undeclared sulfites in the product.

The product is being recalled by Golden Dynasty Trading, Inc., 5726 1st Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11220. "Sweet Potato" is packaged in an uncoded, 6-oz. cello wrapped, clear plastic tray. It is a product of China. "Sweet Potato" was distributed in the New York City area and Boston, Massachusetts.

Routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors revealed the product contained high levels of sulfites, which were not declared on the label.

Sulfites can cause deadly reactions in asthmatics and others suffering sulfite allergies. No illnesses have been reported to date.

Consumers who have purchased "Sweet Potato" should return it to the place of purchase.
