Deshi Golden Raisins Recalled For Undeclared Sulfites

Deshi Distributors LLC of Jamaica, New York is recalling Deshi Golden Raisins because they contain undeclared sulfites. Sulfites are compounds that some people may have a severe sensitivity too. Those people may become seriously ill if they eat this product. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The recalled product is Deshi Golden Raisins, sold in 3.5 ounce, 7 ounce, and 14 ounce packages. They were distributed in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan at the retail level. The UPC numbers are: for the 3.5 ounce product, 691035359586; for the 7 ounce product, 691035360179, and for the 14 ounce product, 691035360483.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspector, and after analysis by Food Laboratory personnel found the sulfites in the 7 ounce packages of the raisins. The same raisins were also packaged in 3.5 ounce and 14 ounce packages, which is why they are included in the recall.

If you purchased these products and you cannot consume sulfites, don’t eat them. Throw them away or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Symptoms of sulfite sensitivity are similar to other symptoms of food allergies. They are, from least to most serious: hives, itchiness, upset stomach, difficulty swallowing, flushing, dizziness, diarrhea,vomiting, a drop in blood pressure, and trouble breathing. Anyone experiencing these symptoms should see a doctor.
