Over 13,000 pillows of Caesar salad dressing from Litehouse Inc. are the subject of a recall because they may contain undeclared anchovies, according to a notice posted by the Food and Drug Administration. Anyone with an allergy or sensitivity to fish could have an adverse reaction should they consume the product.

The 1.5-ounce small white packets of Brite Harbor salad dressing and dip were distributed in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah. All customers impacted have been notified of the recall, which was initiated when the pillows of salad dressing were discovered to say "Caesar" on the front and "Blue Cheese" on the back. An investigation revealed that a packaging mistake caused the error. No reports of injuries or reactions from eating the salad dressing have been reported.

The packets have a "Best By" date of 03 071321 and a lot code of 03 071321 16002 60/1.5 oz Brite Harbor Caesar. The notice says that no other Litehouse products are involved.

"Litehouse took this action proactively because people who are sensitive or have allergies to anchovies could be at risk of an adverse reaction if they consume this product," the notice says. "Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider."

If you have this Caesar salad dressing and dip in your kitchen, throw it out or you can return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
