La Fiesta Food Products has announced a recall of all Dried Shredded Shrimp products. While not posing a health risk to most individuals, an error on the ingredients labels failed to reveal products from La Fiesta and Mi Pueblo contain sulfites.
Consumers with allergies or sensitivity to sulfites are at risk to allergic reaction if they consume these products (listed below).
A Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lab-tested sample of these products revealed the presence of sulfites, prompting the recall. The product will need labels stating: “Allergen Information: Contains Sulfites.”
The FDA has reported that there are no reported illnesses to date, but they urge consumers allergic to sulfites to return these products to the place of purchase for a full refund.
