FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- June 11, 2007 -- A. L. BAZZINI CO., INC. OF BRONX,
NEW YORK is recalling DRIED TURKISH JUMBO APRICOTS because they contain
undeclared sulfites. People who have a severe sensitivity to sulfites run the
risk of serious or life-threatening reactions if they consume these products.
The Dried Turkish Jumbo Apricots were distributed within the New York State to
wholesale distributors.

The product was distributed in 4.25lb plastic containers (jars) during the
month of March 2007 with the following lot number: 7064.

The recall was initiated after routine sampling by New York State Department
of Agriculture and Markets Food Inspectors and subsequent analysis by the
Department's Food laboratory personnel revealed the presence of sulfites in
the product, which were not declared 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. Analysis of the Dried Turkish Jumbo Apricots revealed it contained
73 milligrams per serving.

Consumers who have purchased Bazzini Brand Dried Turkish Jumbo Apricots are
urged to return it to place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with
questions may contact Bazzini at 1-718-842-8644.
