Rhee Bros., Inc., Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sulfites in "Assi" Brand "Dried Bellflower Root"

Minwoo Kim
410-381-9000 ext. 131

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE --Toledo, OH -- April 28, 2005 --- RHEE BROS., INC. of Columbia, MD is recalling its 16 oz. Packages of 'Assi Brand Dried Bellflower Root' because they may contain undeclared sulfites. People who have allergies to sulfites run the risk of serious life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

The recalled product was distributed in retail stores on the Eastern part of the United States. The product comes in a 16 oz. package marked with 'Assi brand Dried Bellflower Root'. Its item number is 06034K on the label.

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

The recall was initiated after sampling by 'Florida State Department of Agriculture & Markets' food inspectors discovered that the sulfite-containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sulfites. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the labeling processes. Wholesale distribution of the product has been suspended until the company is certain that the label has been replaced with a corrected label.

Consumers who have purchased 16 oz. Packages of 'Assi brand Dried Bellflower Root' are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-410-381-9000.
