E.D. Smith USA Issues Allergy Alert on Undeclared Milk and Egg in "Classic Sensation And Garden Goodness Honey Dijon Dressing"
1-877-627-6271, ext. 129
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- North East, PA -- September 1, 2005 -- E.D. Smith USA of North East, PA is recalling 16 ounce bottles of "Classic Sensation and Garden Goodness Honey Dijon Dressing" because they may contain undeclared milk and egg. People who have allergies to milk or egg run the risk of an allergic reaction if they consume these products.
The recalled "Classic Sensation and Garden Goodness Honey Dijon Dressings" were distributed nationwide in retail stores.
The product comes in a 16 ounce, clear plastic bottle. Classic Sensations Honey Dijon Dressing (UPC 36294-40006) is marked with use by date code of 08-10-06 08C (This code is followed by a 4-digit military time stamp), and Garden Goodness Honey Dijon Dressing (UPC 36294-10511) marked with use by date codes of 07-15-06 05C, 07-21-06 04C, 07-25-06 02C, 08-10-06 08C, and 08-18-06 02C (The codes are followed by a 4-digit military time stamp). The codes are located on the back label.
No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem, and there is no risk to consumers who are not allergic to milk or egg.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that the milk and egg containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of milk and egg. Subsequent investigation indicates the two ingredients (milk, egg) were not on the ingredient statement of the package. This has been rectified.
Consumers who have purchased 16 ounce packages of "Classic Sensations or Garden Goodness Honey Dijon Dressing" are urged to return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with question may contact the company at 1-877-627-6271.
