Chicago’s Conagra Is Recalling Wishbone Salad Dressings
Another day, another recall. This time around, the product(s) being recalled are made by an Illinois-based company Conagra Brands, Inc.
If you're a salad avoider (someone who calls salad "what food eats") this will probably not be something that you're overly concerned about, if at all. However, if you're a regular buyer and user of one of the top-selling brands of salad dressings, read on.
If You Don't Have A Salad Dressing Bottle That Says Conagra On The Label, Look For The Words Wish Bone
Knowing how ranch dressing lovers can get about their favorite salad topping, you devotees to all things ranch can breathe a sigh of relief because ranch dressing is not part of Conagra's voluntary recall. I know that finding empty store shelves is one thing, but having ranch dressing yanked off of those store shelves could push some folks over the edge.
The Reason For The Recall Is Not Because Of What's In The Dressing, But Instead What's Not On The Label
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the affected products are Wish-Bone Thousand Island salad dressing and Wish-Bone Chunky Blue Cheese salad dressing in both 15- and 24-ounce bottles.
Conagara is recalling the dressings because they contained eggs, but the ingredient was not listed on the product labels. Eggs could potentially make those with egg sensitivities or allergies sick. The FDA says that, at this point, there have been no reports of anyone getting sick.
