Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sulfites in Dried Tomato and Garlic Pesto Mix
Tastefully Simple is voluntarily recalling all codes of its 3-ounce jar of Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix (item #209106) and its Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix sample packets (item #209704) because they contain sulfites, which are not declared on the label. This recall applies to the 3-ounce plastic jar sold after February 6, 2006. The 1.8-ounce glass jar and samples sold prior to that date are not affected.
Anyone who is allergic to sulfites should not consume this product. People who are allergic to sulfites and eat this product run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction. There is no risk to individuals who are not allergic to sulfites.
The presence of sulfites was discovered through routine product testing by Tastefully Simple's Director of Quality Assurance on January 16.
