The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced the recall of America's Choice-brand classic Caesar salad dressing because of a labeling error.
The FDA said Bay Valley Foods LLC is voluntarily recalling 535 cases of the Caesar salad dressing because some of the bottles display an incorrect ingredient label. The label includes ingredient and nutrition information for Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing and doesn't declare the presence of fish, soy and wheat, posing a health risk to people allergic to those ingredients.
The recalled dressing was distributed to stores in Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York and the District of Columbia in 16-ounce plastic bottles marked with a "best before" date code of "02-09-09" that can be found on the back label. If the ingredient label on the back is for "Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing," consumers may return the product for a full refund.
Consumers with questions can contact Bay Valley Foods at 800-983-0823.
