FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Napa, CA -- February 11, 2008 -- Annie's Naturals is voluntarily recalling 686 cases of 8 fl oz. bottles of all-natural Shiitake & Sesame Vinaigrette. The product could be mislabeled and may contain soy sauce (contains soy and wheat) and sesame that were not declared on the ingredient statement. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to soy run the risk of serious allergic reaction if they consume this product.

There have been no illnesses or injuries reported to date. Anyone concerned about an illness should contact a physician immediately.

Affected product was shipped to grocery and natural food stores in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Washington, between December 20, 2007 and February 6, 2008.

Consumers can most easily identify impacted product by looking at the product labels – the front label says Shiitake & Sesame Vinaigrette, but the back label and ingredient statement say Low Fat Honey Mustard Vinaigrette. Only dressings with UPC # 0-92325-33319-2 with a Best By Date of 02/20/09/1/E and 02/20/09/2/E are affected.

Organic Shiitake & Sesame Vinaigrette, 16 oz. bottles of Shiitake & Sesame Vinaigrette, and other Annie's Naturals products are not affected by this recall.

The problem occurred during a product changeover when back labels for Honey Mustard Vinaigrette were commingled with back labels for all-natural Shiitake Sesame Vinaigrette. The Honey Mustard Vinaigrette products were unaffected.

Consumers who have purchased 8 fl oz all natural Shiitake & Sesame Vinaigrette are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund or may call Annie's Naturals Consumer Relations at 1.800.288.1089 to obtain a coupon for a free product.
