Tomaso’s dressing recall

FDA Press Release: Tomaso’s of Blue Lake, Ca. is recalling its 12 ounce CAESAR DRESSING. People who have allergies to EGGS run the risk of serious or life threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

The recalled Caesar dressing was distributed to retail grocery stores in Humboldt county.

No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this problem.

The recall was initiated after it was discovered that egg containing product was distributed in packaging that did not reveal the presence of egg on the labeling.

Caesar is packaged in 12 oz. glass jars with UPC code 748535 102058.

The problem has been corrected by Tomaso’s by removing mislabeled products from retail sales and printing on label the use of eggs in mayonnaise on labels in their formulations.

Consumers who have purchased Caesar Dressing are urged to return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact TOMASO’S at 707-668-1868 24 hours day.

    Sorry to hear about this labeling snafu. Sounds like they are handling it appropriately.

    I hope it doesn’t hurt them too badly — we need all the local businesses we can get.

    I especially like Tomaso’s Spicy Eggplant pasta sauce. Yummy!

    The other day I ordered a pizza for take-out, and nowhere on the box did it indicate that the contents contained cheese, tomato sauce not to mention wheat flour and olive oil. Alert the authorities!

    Thanks H. (yes, you read that correctly)

    Nice response by Tomaso’s. As a person with food allergies I appreciate that they are so willing to take responsibility and get the word out, though folks with egg allergies are unlikely to be buying a bottle of creamy dressing anyhow given the likelihood of mayo in the mix. I hope that those purchasers who are NOT allergic to eggs will just chill out and enjoy their dressing and spare the company further headache.

    Innocent mistake by a good local company. Don’t hold it against them.

    I also love the Spicy Eggplant sauce, as well as the Basil Garlic. Lately, I’ve been buying the prepared ravioli too – all quite good. Too bad about the label issue. Hope nothing major precipitated this.

    No need to do anything with the dressing unless you mistakenly bought it thinking there were no eggs in it. You can support this local company by just keeping it if you purchased it.

    Doesn’t everyone know that caesar dressing contains eggs? A real homemade one contains raw egg. And the main ingredient for mayo is eggs. Why do we have to label the obvious? Is everyone really this ignorant about the food they eat? Pathetic!
