A Brooklyn food distributor is issuing a recall for one product due to an undeclared ingredient.

A&S Food Trading Inc. is recalling packages of Gorgeous Memory Daylily because they contain undeclared sulfites. Consumers who have a severe sensitivity to sulfites run risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. No illnesses or allergic reaction involving this product have been reported to date.

The product is packaged in 10.6 ounce clear plastic bags. Consumers could purchase the product at retail locations throughout the New York City area.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets (NYSDAM) Food Inspector and subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites. Analysis of Gorgeous Memory Daylily revealed they contained 4477.9 milligrams per serving. The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reactions in some asthmatics.

Consumers who purchased this product are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact A&S Food Trading at (718) 369-2648.
