In a nutshell: Mislabeled salad dressing contains eggs but it’s not on the label. Could be problematic in western states.
T. Marzetti Company, Columbus, Ohio is recalling a limited number of 12 fl. oz. bottles of Girard’s Honey Dijon Peppercorn (item 58105) because they may have the incorrect back label of Girard’s French Dressing (item 58015). The Girard’s Honey Dijon Peppercorn contains eggs, which is not declared as an ingredient on the Girard’s French label. People who have allergies to egg run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume this product.
The bottles were shipped in corrugated cases marked with the item number 58105 and with a date code of Best By 06-11-09M. The 12 fl. oz. bottles are labeled with “Girard’s Honey Dijon Peppercorn” on the front, the back of the bottle may be labeled with Girard’s French Dressing (item 58015), with the date code of Best By 06-11-09M. No other date codes are involved in the recall.
The recalled bottles of Girard’s Honey Dijon Peppercorn Dressing were distributed throughout the western United States (primarily California, Washington, and Oregon).
No illnesses have been reported in connection with this problem.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that incorrect back labels on the bottles were used that did not reveal the presence of eggs.
