Unilever Issues Nationwide Allergy Alert
The maker of Shedd’s Country Crock chilled side-dish products is recalling two of its side dishes because they contain undeclared sulfites in the ingredients. The recall was initiated after a report of four family members who suffered adverse effects associated with the side-dish products. The products in question include:
- Deluxe Cheddar Broccoli Rice, best by dates 11/29/09 through 1/16/10, upc code 027400218316.
- Deluxe Four Cheese Pasta, best by dates 12/05/09 through 1/16/10, upc code 027400230875.
No other Shedd’s Country Crock side dishes are affected by the recall.
Sulfites are frequently used as food preservatives, but are also allergens for many susceptible people. People with sulfite allergies may suffer the following symptoms:
- Swelling of the throat
People who suffer from sulfite allergies rely on proper labeling of food products to avoid suffering adverse reactions. When food products are mislabeled allergy suffers may experience needlessly.
If you or a loved one suffered a reaction as a result of consuming one of these products, you may have legal recourse to collect damages. To find out more about your legal options, please contact the product liability litigators at Schlichter, Bogard & Denton, LLP.
