Improper labeling creating a potentially serious, life-threatening situation has resulted in the recall of 365 brand Organic Creamy Caesar Dressing from Whole Foods Market stores in Florida, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas and in 21 other states.
Van Law Food Products admits in its FDA-issued recall notice that the back label of 12-ounce bottles of the 365 Classic Ranch Dressing & Dip brand was affixed to the recalled bottles of Creamy Organic Caesar Dressing. The Classic Ranch flavor contains milk and egg, so these are the allergens warned on the back label of the Organic Creamy Caesar. But this latest dressing doesn’t have milk and egg, but rather soy and wheat.
“People allergic or sensitive to soy or wheat run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these ingredients,” the recall notice states.
The recalled 12 ounce bottles of Organic Creamy Caesar Dressing have an expiration date of 06/04/2023. They were sent to stores in the five aforementioned states, as well as Alabama, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Mexico, Ohio, Tennessee, Utah. , Wisconsin and Wyoming.
If it is impossible for the dressing to be served to someone with a soy or wheat allergy, continue as usual. If there’s a chance it’s being served to someone with a soy or wheat allergy, return it for a refund, an exchange for a properly labeled bottle, or at least just throw it in the trash. People with severe food allergies read labels carefully and ask people who prepare food for them to do the same.
