FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- June 21, 2005 -- New York State Agriculture Commissioner Nathan L. Rudgers today alerted consumers that Oriental House, 1706 Erie Boulevard East, Syracuse, New York is recalling "Dried Vegetable" due to the presence of undeclared sulfites. People who have severe sensitivity to sulfites may run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled "Dried Vegetable," a product of China, is packaged in a 4 ounce plastic bag. It was sold in the Syracuse area.

Routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis of the product by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the product contained high levels of sulfites, which were not declared on the label.

The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfite sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites.

No illnesses have been reported to date to this Department in connection with this problem.
