Golden Natural Dried Apricots Recalled For Undeclared Sulfites

Golden Natural dried apricots are being recalled for sulfites that are not declared on the label. While sulfites are not one of the major food allergens classified by the FDA, the government does require that sulfites be listed on food labels if that food contains 10 ppm or more, since this compound can cause serious or life-threatening reactions in people with asthma. Sulfites are often used to process dried apricots and other dried fruits.
