Major Salad Dressing Recall
Due to a product quality issue, Tasty Toppings Inc. has issued a voluntary recall of Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing primarily shipped to Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota. It’s important to note the product poses no health risks to consumers and Fat Free Dorothy Lynch Dressing is not included in the recall.
After conducting extensive tests, they have identified a product quality issue with one of their ingredients. A bacteria (lactobacillus), commonly found in food products such as yogurt as well as probiotics, is causing gas bubbles to form inside sealed bottles of Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing. This causes the dressing to foam or spew out of the bottles when opened.
If you have purchased a bottle of dressing, you can look at the "Best By" date on the neck of the bottle to determine if it has been affected.
Affected "Best By" dates are:
• Home Style 8, 16, or 32 ounce bottles:
• Bottles with "Best By" dates between 9/16/16 and 1/7/17 are recalled.
• Home Style gallons:
• Gallons with "Best By" dates between 6/16/16 and 10/11/16 are recalled.
If you have already opened a bottle within this date range and did not experience any issues, you can decide to either discard the bottle or continue using the product.
Customers who have experienced any quality issues from an affected bottle or have recently purchased a bottle in the affected date range are encouraged to return to the store for a refund. Their customer service personnel are available Monday thru Friday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM to answer questions by phone at 800-228-4148 or by email using the form
Here is an updated message from the company as of 5/18/16:
Since the initial recall, we have been working with our supplier to resolve the quality issue as quickly and efficiently as possible. Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing is still being produced, however, additional testing processes have been added at our supplier’s facility and at our facility in Columbus. Each new batch is also held for an extra 7 days to ensure there are no issues prior to shipping. These additional measures delay delivery to stores and our ability to restock shelves.
Our goal is to make sure everything on the market is nothing less than perfect. We have shipped some product and we ask for your patience and understanding while we work to refill the shelves.
