Company Announcement

Deshi Distributors LLC. of Jamaica, NY, is recalling its 3.5 oz,  7 oz and 14 oz  packages of Deshi “Golden Raisins”  because they contained undeclared sulfites. Consumers who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The Golden Raisin with “undeclared sulphite” was distributed in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan and through delivery to retail stores.

The product comes in a 3.5 oz, 7 oz. and 14 oz. clear plastic package. UPC codes of Deshi Golden Raisin products are as follows: 3.5 oz is 691035359586; 7 oz. is 691035360179; and 14 oz. is 691035360483.

No illness or allergic reactions involving this product have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspector and subsequent analysis by Food Laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites in the 7 oz. packages of Deshi “Golden Raisin” which were not declared on the label. The same raisins were packaged in 3.5 oz and 14 oz packages and are included in this recall.

Consumers who have purchased 3.5 oz, 7 oz  and 14 oz  packages of  Deshi “Golden Raisins” are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 718-291-1205 from 9 am to 5 pm Eastern Time.
