IN Canada we have limits for   sulfites used as additives in food

 

Canadian regs::2,500 p.p.m. calculated as sulphur dioxide - Does US have similar requirements ? if they do , can you point me to the right regulation/ reference?

Thanks you guys

 

 I have product (dried fruit)  bound for USA with over 3500ppm in sulphites- just don't want to  run into issue at the borders. In Canada I would return this to supplier.

 

 It is labelled as having sulphites in the ingredients
