FDA announces Chinese herb recall

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of Radix Polygonati Officinalis, a Chinese herb, because of a labeling error.

The FDA said Sunny Lake Trading Inc. of New York initiated the recall because the product contains undeclared sulfites, thereby posing a risk of severe reactions, including anaphylactic shock, for people allergic to sulfites.


Radix Polygonati Officinalis -- sold in 12 ounce uncoded, clear plastic bags -- was distributed across the New York State area. It is a product of China.

Consumers who have purchased Radix Polygonati Officinalis may return it for a refund. Consumers with questions can contact the company at 718-453-3838.
