The recalled Sun Kee Brand Dried Sweet Potato is packed in uncoded 12oz plastic packages and were sold in the U.S. East Coast areas. A photo of this product's label is attached above.

The recall was initiated after 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 presence of undeclared sulfites in Sun Kee Brand Dried Sweet Potato in packages which did not declare sulfites on the label. The consumption of 10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reaction in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfite sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more sulfites.

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

Consumers who have purchased Sun Kee Brand Dried Potato should return it to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the company at

No action is required of local health departments at this time for any of these recalls. If any requests for assistance are received from either the New York Department of Agriculture and Markets or the U.S. FDA, the Food and Drug Safety Program will contact you.
