Go Fresh Produce, Inc., Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Sulfites in
Go Fresh Dried Fruit Mix
Contact:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Yonkers, NY -- May 14, 2004 --- GO FRESH
PRODUCE, INC., 77 Riverdale Ave., Yonkers, NY 10701 is recalling GO
FRESH DRIED FRUIT MIX because it contains undeclared sulfites. People
who have severe sensitivity to sulfites run the risk of serious or
life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume this product.

The recalled GO FRESH DRIED FRUIT MIX sold in 6.5 oz., plastic
containers were sold in the NYC area. The product's UPC number is
2983200033.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State
Department of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors revealed the
presence of undeclared sulfites in packages of GO FRESH DRIED FRUIT
MIX which did not declare sulfites on the label. The consumption of
10 milligrams of sulfites per serving has been reported to elicit
severe reactions 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.

Consumers who have purchased GO FRESH DRIED FRUIT MIX should return it
to the place of purchase. Consumers with questions may contact the
company at 914-844-0238.
