J.V. Trading Glendale Has Recalled Chili Sauce
Hicksville, NY (SafetyAlerts)
The Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) said that J.V. TRADING GLENDALE LTD., 385 W. John St., Hicksville, NY 11801
has recalled jars of CHILI SAUCE because they contain undeclared peanuts. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to peanuts run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.
CHILI SAUCE was distributed nation-wide through retail stores and wholesale distributors. CHILI SAUCE is packaged in 300gr. glass jars with red and tan labeling, all Chinese writing and with red metal screw caps. There is no apparent code on the jars.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after routine sampling by Food Inspectors of the New York State Dept. of Agriculture and Markets revealed the presence of peanuts not declared on the label.
Consumers who have purchased the CHILI SAUCE are urged to return it to J.V. TRADING GLENDALE LTD. at the above address for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (516) 942-9308.
