Sundried Tomato Recall

Now, on the recall block, sundried tomatoes.  The brand being recalled is Aviator Sundried Tomato Halves in a 5 pound bag.  These are being recalled due to  sulfites.  For a lot of consumers,  sulfites are harmless.  Unless you have an allergy.  If you have an allergy to sulfites, this could actually lead to hospitalization or death depending on the severity of the allergic reaction.
