Option A - Correct
This is correct because the right modifier is used after the right subject.

Option B - Incorrect
The use of present of continuous tense, when the sentiment occurred in the past which causes an omission of vital information which is where iodized salt is making its way to.

Option C - Incorrect
This option lacks a main verb. It is only supporting verbs which doesn't give the sentence much meaning.

Option D - Incorrect
The modifying phrase 'first' sold in May' is far from the subject 'iodized salt'.

Option E - Incorrect
This answer choice is grammatically correct but it changes the meaning of the sentence. It also states that iodized salt doesn't have any role to play at all, which is not so.
