Uncle Charlie's Products, Inc. Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sulfites in Apricot Muffin Mix

(SafetyAlerts) - Uncle Charlie's Products, Inc., 189 East Avenue, Akron. NY 14001 is recalling Apricot Muffin Mix because it may contain undeclared sulfites. People who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The Apricot Muffin Mix being recalled are those packages that DO NOT contain the phrase "Apricots, (Sulphured)" in the ingredient statement section of the back label. The recalled product was shipped throughout the United States prior to October 14, 2003.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors revealed the presence of undeclared sulfites in Apricot Muffin Mix in packages which did not declare sulfites on the label. The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit 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 Apricot Muffin Mix should return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-666-2899
