European Natural Food & Trading Co, Inc. of Paterson, NJ is recalling Brian's Cauliflower 83 oz. due to undeclared sulfites. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products.

Brian's Cauliflower 83 oz. was distributed in NY, MA, CT and NJ where it reached consumers through retail stores. The product is pickled cauliflower and was sold in large clear, glass jars with the brand name Brian's and UPC 858567002421. The expiration date is 28/11/2016. The product was shipped during 2013 and 2014.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered by NYSDAM Laboratory sampling and analysis that product containing sulfites were distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sulfites. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.

Consumers who have purchased Brian's Cauliflower 83 oz. are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at (973) 553-1896, Monday - Friday from 9am - 5pm (Eastern Time Zone).
