Golden Natural Products, Inc. of Brooklyn, NY is recalling:

  1. Golden Natural Product Inc. brand Dried Apricot Subkhon with Bone, Net Wt. 16 oz (1 lb) 454 g; Lot: GC005; Best Before: 2023
  2. Golden Natural Product Inc. brand Dried Apricot Subkhon Jumbo, Net Wt. 16 oz (1 lb) 454 g; Lot: GC005; Best Before: 2023

because they contain 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.

The above products were distributed to CA, WA, and NY through wholesalers.  Consumers would have purchased product through retail stores.

The products are packaged in 16oz plastic bags with white labels. The product codes, “Lot: GC005” and “Best Before: 2023” can be found on the back panel of both product packages.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

The recall was initiated after FDA sampling revealed that product containing sulfites was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sulfites.

Consumers who have purchased 16oz  packages of Golden Natural Product Inc. brand Dried Apricot Subkhon with Bone and Golden Natural Product Inc. brand Dried Apricot Subkhon Jumbo are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at akbashev@gmail.com or call 718-607-8181 from 8:00am to 5:00pm EST.
