FDA warns – 5-pound packages of Aviator-branded Dehydrated Tomato Halves due to undeclared sulfites

According to the FDA, Global Veg Corp, headquartered in New York, New York, has recalled its 5-pound packages of Aviator-branded Dehydrated Tomato Halves, under all lots and codes, due to the potential presence of undeclared sulfites.

Individuals who live with a severe sensitivity to sulfites are advised that they could experienced a major or life-threatening reaction upon consumption of the product.

Distributed across the U.S., Aviator Dehydrated Tomato Halves come packaged in 5-pound vacuum bags. As can be observed in a photo attached to the FDA announcement, the product label is white and prominently features two images: the bust of an aviator and a small plane seen head-on.

The company initiated the recall after a routine sampling conducted by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors, as well as a follow-up analysis by Food Laboratory officials, demonstrated that the already-distributed product contains sulfites, which do not appear as an ingredient on labeled packaging.

While Global Veg Corp has not received any reports of illness or adverse reactions connected to the problem to date, anyone who may have purchase a 5-pound bag of Aviator-branded Dehydrated Tomato Halves (Lot#060923/1) is asked to bring the product back to the point of purchase. Consumers may received a complete refund for an affected product. The company can also be reached at 201-367-0517 for any questions or concerns.
