The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning people with allergies to sulphites not to eat a certain brand of bamboo shoots sold in British Columbia.
The Flying Swallow brand Tender Bamboo Shoots is sold in 250-gram packages, which don't declare they contain sulphites, the agency says.
Eating the product may cause a serious or life-threatening reaction in people with allergies to sulphites, it warns.
There have been no reported illnesses associated with the consumption of the product, which comes in packages bearing UPC 7 77244 90068 6 and the lot code 2006 9 28.
The importer, Clover Trading Co. Ltd. of Vancouver, is voluntarily recalling the affected product from the marketplace. The federal food inspection agency says it's monitoring the effectiveness of the recall.
