FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - April 8, 2011 - La Fiesta Food Products, Inc., is voluntarily recalling all Dried Shredded Shrimp products due to an error on the ingredients labels. The products contain sulfites and the new labels will be updated accordingly. Certain consumers having severe sensitivity or allergies to sulfite run the risk of allergic reactions if they consume this product.

Additionally, La Fiesta Food Products, Inc., is voluntarily recalling Dried Shredded Shrimp products sold under the label Mi Pueblo.

Dried Shredded Shrimp are sold in the following packages:

La Fiesta Brand
Shredded Shrimp (Camaron Molido)
1 7/8
Shredded Shrimp
Shredded Shrimp (Camaron Molido)
Camarón Molido (Shredded Shrimp)
Mi Pueblo Brand
Camaron Molido (Shredded Shrimp)
1 3/4
Camaron Molido
2 1/2
Camaron Molido
6 1/4
Camarón Seco Molido

The voluntary recall was initiated after sampling and lab analysis revealed the presence of sulfites in Dried Shredded Shrimp; the allergen warning was not printed on the labels. The new labels will state “Allergen Information: Contains Sulfites.”

No illnesses have been reported to date. As a precautionary and voluntary measure, consumers allergic to sulfites are urged to return these products to the place of purchase for a full refund.

La Fiesta Foods, Inc., has been in business since 1954. La Fiesta maintains strict quality controls on all its products. Customers can continue to expect the highest quality products from La Fiesta, as they have for the last 57 years.
