Jansal Valley® Dried Chili De Arbol Peppers Recalled for Undeclared Peanuts

Sid Wainer & Son® has just recalled its “Jansal Valley® Dried Chili De Arbol Peppers” product. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) reports that these dried chili peppers may contain peanuts, an allergen that was not identified on the labeling of their clear plastic clamshell containers. Sid Wainer & Son® is headquartered in New Bedford, Massachusetts.

The dried chili de arbol peppers were distributed to retail grocery store chains across the United States. The individual 1-ounce containers, packaged in cases containing 12 units each, were stamped with the “Best By” dates of 9/11/2018, 9/22/2018, and 9/26/2018.

People who are allergic to peanuts run the risk of life-threatening illness if they ingest these dried chili de arbol peppers. They have been advised to throw the packages away immediately.

If you are allergic to peanuts you already know the symptoms and should be carrying an epinephrine pen with you. But allergies can develop at any time of life, with no warning.

The beginning symptoms of the sign of an allergy include tingling in the lips, tongue, mouth, and throat. This symptom can be uncomfortable but it is not life-threatening. Other mild to moderate symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, a runny nose, redness of the skin, especially around the mouth of eyes, hives, and an eczema flare.

Serious and possible life-threatening allergic symptoms include trouble swallowing, shortness of breath, wheezing, swelling of the lips, tongue, and throat that may block breathing, loss of consciousness, and a drop in blood pressure. If you or anyone you know is experiencing these symptoms they should be taken to an emergency room.
