Abstract

Sulphite is added to various foods due to its antioxidative effect. Sulphite is known to provoke bronchoconstriction in some atopics and individuals with asthma. Some asthmatics develop symptoms after ingestion of sulphite preserved foods. Occupational asthma due to sulphite has been described in the potato, wine, and laundry industries. An asthma-like
syndrome has been described in agricultural workers during apricot sulphurisation. To our knowledge this is the first reported case of sulphite related occupational asthma in the fishing industry
