Kroger Recalls Light Caesar Salad Dressing on Labeling Error

CINCINNATI -- The Kroger Co. here is recalling its 16 oz. house brand of Light Caesar Salad Dressing because the back label of the bottle was mislabeled with a Light Asian Salad Dressing label.

The company said a small number of cases were released that contain the back label for light Asian dressing, which does not list milk, egg, and anchovies in the ingredient statement or allergen contains statement. People who have an allergy to milk, eggs, and/or anchovies run the risk of serious or life-threatening reaction if they consume this product.

No illnesses have been reported with the dressing, which carries a sell by date of May 9, 2008, code of SA7221 and a UPC number: 0 11110- 71765 8 on the back label.

The salad dressing may have been distributed to Kroger, Dillons, Food 4 Less (Chicago area only), Jay C, Smith's, Fry's, King Soopers, and City Market grocery stores. No other Kroger-brand salad dressings are affected by this recall.
The mislabeling issue was identified at three Fry's stores in the Phoenix area. The company is investigating the mislabeling and will enhance labeling procedures to prevent future occurrences.

Kroger is encouraging customers to return the product to the store they purchased it from for a full refund and is directing consumers with questions or concerns to call 1-800-632- 6900.
