Wish-Bone Is Recalling Thousands of Ranch Salad Dressings

Heads up if you’ve purchased ranch dressing, especially if you have an egg allergy

Wish-Bone ranch dressings are being recalled after being mixed up with the blue cheese dressing, which contains egg.

If you have purchased a Wish-Bone Ranch Salad Dressing recently, you might need to return it — especially if you have egg allergies.

Pinnacle Food Groups in New Jersey, parent company of Wish-Bone, announced on June 23 that its blue cheese dressing was accidentally bottled and labeled as ranch dressing, according to the Food and Drug Administration.

The blue cheese dressing is made with eggs, so those with food sensitivities to eggs should avoid Wish-Bone Ranch until it’s safe to consume again. The FDA said no illnesses have been reported to date.

The recalled dressings are 24-ounce bottles produced on April 23 with the expiration date February 17, 2016. There were 8,678 bottles of ranch distributed throughout the country.

All distributors, customers, and the Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network have been notified, and the product is being removed from store shelves. Customers who return the bottles will receive a full refund.
