NATIONWIDE — APRICOT ROLLS sold out of a Hicksville, Long Island plant are being recalled because they contain sulfites not declared on the label, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has announced.  Aahu Barah USA Inc. of Hicksville, NY, recalled 19 14-ounce boxes of Aahu Barah apricot roll. People with severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume these products. The product bears an expiration date of December 2025 and was distributed in New York, Texas, Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Georgia through retail stores.

The New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets discovered the undeclared sulfites. Food Inspectors discovered the sulfites while sampling. Subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites in the apricot roll. Although no illnesses or allergic reactions involving this product have been reported to date, consumers who have purchased this particular Aahu Barah apricot roll product are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 516-396-0710.

While the FDA often provides photos of the product and label as a courtesy for consumers, a picture wasn’t available as of press time.
