Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based Truong Giang Distributor Corp has recalled its Golden Owl Dried Mango due to the potential presence of undeclared sulfites, according to the FDA.
Individuals who live with an allergy or sensitivity to sulfites are advised against consuming the product, as they could suffer a major, possibly life-threatening allergic reaction.
Announced by the company on January 29, 2024, the recall covers Golden Owl Dried Mango that was distributed and made available for purchase across U.S. retail stores. As can be referenced in the photo attached to the FDA announcement, the product comes in 7-ounce (100-gram)clear plastic containers that are printed with UPC 816710-024461 printed on the left side.
Officials say a routine sampling conducted by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, which revealed sulfites to be present in the product. A recall was initiated because the packaging for the already-distributed product does not indicate sulfites as an ingredient or allergen. An internal investigation has since identified that the problem stemmed from a disruption on the part of the supplier’s labeling protocols.
Although Truong Giang Distributor Corp has not been made aware of any related illnesses or allergic reactions to date, anyone who may have purchased a product is asked to refrain from consuming the product. The item may be taken back to the place of purchase to receive a complete refund.
Further questions my be directed at the company at 215-456-1883, Monday to Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern time.
