[JAN. 11, 2007]  BROOKLYN, N.Y. -- Ho's Trading Inc. is recalling its Home Special Health Soup Recipe, a dry mix, because it contains undeclared sulfites. People who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled soup mix is packed in a 5.3-ounce uncoded plastic container and is a product of China. The product was sold nationwide.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets food inspectors and subsequent analysis of the product by food laboratory personnel revealed the presence of undeclared sulfites in the soup mix, which did not declare sulfites on the label. The consumption of 10 milligrams or more of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit severe reaction in some asthmatics. Anaphylactic shock could occur in certain sulfite-sensitive individuals upon ingesting 10 milligrams or more of sulfites.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.
