Fresh lychees sold in B.C. recalled due to undeclared sulphites
The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has updated a recall warning about fresh lychees to identify additional areas of distribution.
Ontario-based Monco Produce is recalling fresh lychees due to sulphites not being declared on the label.
The recall was originally issued on August 31 but was updated by the CFIA on September 6. The product is sold in bulk or packed by retail stores and distributed in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and possibly other provinces or territories.
The lychees were sold from August 7 to 31 in a variety of sizes.
Anyone who has sensitivities to sulphites should not consume the recalled product, as it can cause serious or life-threatening reactions. Anyone who has the product should dispose of it or return it to the place of purchase.
So far, there haven't been any reported reactions associated with this product.
