1,000 Bags of STR Brand Dried Vegetables Recalled

Brooklyn, NY (SafetyAlerts) - Strong America Limited is recalling 1,000 Bags of "STR brand Dried Vegetable" because product may contain undeclared sulfites.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

STR brand Dried Vegetable is retailed in 6 oz. plastic bags in the New York state area.  No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that product containing sulfites was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sulfites. 

The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock can occur in certain sulfite-sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites. Analysis of dried lily flower revealed that it contained 141.9 milligrams per serving.

Consumers who have STR brand Dried Vegetable (Lily Flower) can return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-628-6200.

Notice of this product warning was sent via email to SafeMail subscribers July 5, 2000.
