Suantianyangmei Waxberry Recalled For Sulfites and Cyclamates

Lin’s Waha Int’l Corp. of Syosset, New York is recalling packages of Suantianyangmei Waxberry and Bingtangyangmei Waxberry because they contain undeclared sulfites and cyclamates. People who have sensitive to sulfites could have a serious or life-threatening reaction if they eat these products. Cyclamate is an unapproved ingredient and has been completely banned in the U.S. since 1970. No illnesses or reactions have been associated with these products to date.

The recalled Suantianyangmei Waxberry and Bingtangyangmei Waxberry products were distributed nationwide at the retail level. The berries are packaged in 8.11 ounce (230 gram) clear plastic containers. Suantianyangmei Waxberry has the UPC number 6948576407226 and the date 03.12.2020 stamped on the box. Bingtangyangmei Waxberry has the UPC number 6948576407219 and date 02.13.2020 stamped on the box.

This recall was issued after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by the Department’s Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites and cyclamates in these products. If some people with asthma or those who are sensitive to the ingredient consume 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving, they can suffer from anaphylactic shock. Analysis of the Suantianyangmei Waxberry and Bingtangyangmei Waxberry revealed they contained undeclared sulfites in the amounts of 13.88 milligrams and 12.85 milligrams per serving, respectively.

If you purchased either of these products, do not eat them even if you aren’t sensitive to sulfites. Throw them away in a sealed container in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the store where you purchased them for a full refund.
