Roland Foods, LLC, Initiates A Voluntary Recall of Roland® Preserved Lemons Due to Undeclared Sulfites in Product

October 11, 2016 - From the FDA:

Roland Foods, LLC in cooperation with the manufacturer in Morocco, is voluntarily recalling specific lots of Roland® Preserved Lemons due to undeclared sulfites in the product. People who have a severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product. The affected lots of Roland® Preserved Lemons were distributed nationwide and to Canada to food distributors, food service customers, and super market chains for further distribution or use. The following product is subject to the voluntary recall:

and No other lots of Roland® Preserved Lemons are affected by this voluntary recall.
The recall was initiated after the firm received a notification from the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets that the product containing sulfites was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of sulfites. Subsequent testing conducted by a private laboratory confirmed the presence of sulfites in the product. Roland Foods has notified the foreign manufacturer of the findings in order to conduct an investigation as to what caused the problem.
Consumers who have a sensitivity to sulfites and had purchased the affected Roland Preserved Lemons are urged not to consume the product and to return it to the place of purchase. Consumers can visit www.rolandfood.com, or contact its Consumer Hotline at 1-800-221-4030 ext. 222, Monday – Friday, 9 am -5 pm EST, for further information about the voluntary recall and for instructions on obtaining replacement product.
