Keshav Dry Apricots Recalled For Undeclared Sulfites

Peekay International of Maspeth New York is recalling two sizes of Keshav Dry Apricots food treats because they contain undeclared sulfites. Anyone who has a severe sensitivity to sulfites could have a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat this product. No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recalled Keshav Dry Apricots was sold in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut in retail store and also through mail order. The product is packaged in a 7 ounce clear plastic package and 14 ounce clear plastic packages. The UPC number for the 7 ounce package is 4386423302 and the UPC code for the 14 ounce package is 4386423303.

Routine sampling by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors, and analysis by Food Laboratory personnel found the sulfites in the 14 ounce package of Keshav Dry Apricots. The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving can cause severe reactions in some people with asthma. And anaphylactic shock can occur in some sulfite sensitive people when they consume 10 milligrams or more of sulfites per serving. The Keshav Dry Apricot had 109 milligrams of sulfites per serving.

If you purchased either of these products and have asthma, or are sensitive to sulfites, don’t eat it. Throw it away or take it back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.
