A Florida based food company recalled a potato product because it could trigger an allergic reaction in some people.

Mas Food Services Co. from Oakland issued the recall after learning the 15 ounce packages of its Peruchef Brand Dry Potatoes may have undeclared sulfites, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

People with sulfate allergies or sensitivity to it could suffer from a life-threatening allergic reaction if they eat the dry potatoes, the FDA added.

According to the FDA, there have been no reported illnesses caused by the product and the company issued the recall voluntarily after it was discovered through a routine sampling.

Over 1,000 units of the product have already been delivered to grocery stores in Florida, Virginia, New Jersey and Maryland.

The FDA tells anyone that they can get a full refund if they return it to the store they bought it from. The dry potatoes come in a plastic bag, have an expiration date of August 2019 and possess a universal product code of 7755864000194.
