If You Have This Condiment in Your Fridge, Throw it Out Now
House-Autry Mills, Inc. is expanding a recall of House-Autry Tartar Sauce as a precaution after its co-manufacturer verified spoilage associated with the condiment.
Though independent lab tests revealed no signs of pathogenic organisms in the bottles, they did uncover elevated yeast numbers in one of the ingredients: dill pickle relish. A voluntary recall was first announced on Jan. 22.
The 9-ounce, clear bottles included in the recall were distributed to retails stores between Dec. 7, 2020, and Jan. 18, 2021, in 13 states: Alabama, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia. You can find a full list of impacted products, plus their UPC codes and lot numbers, here.
In addition to pickles, foods like alcohol, bread, and salad dressing typically have higher amounts of yeast in them. This tartar sauce's main ingredients are mayonnaise and dill pickle relish, so it's important to regularly check on it in the fridge to avoid potential food poisoning. If you have a bottle of the recalled House-Autry brand condiment, you should throw it out now or return it to your place of purchase for a refund.
