Huangfushanzen Dried Mushrooms Recalled Due to Sulfites
On March 24, 2020, Tiffany Food Corp. based in Brooklyn, New York, issued a recall on their “Huangfushanzen Huang Mountain Tea Mushroom (黄府山珍茶花菇) Dried Mushrooms” with UPC 6 943153 804047. The recall was made due to the possibility of undeclared sulfites. Sulfites usually are used to prevent browning or discoloration in foods like bread, potatoes, and condiments; but more specifically in dried fruits like apricots. Allergies could be possible, so undeclared packaging of sulfites could be dangerous.

The product is packaged in 170g/6oz clear, green, gold, and red plastic bags with UPC 6 943153 804047. No illnesses have been reported due to this recall as of March 24th.
