Tasty Toppings has announced that it is recalling a salad dressing product due to a manufacturing error.

The company is recalling its Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing due to the presence of lactobacillus bacteria. This bacteria is used in foods such as yogurt and probiotics that forms gas bubbles. In the affected bottles of dressing, the lactobacillus causes the dressing to foam over or spew out when opened.

The product poses no health risks to consumers.

The recalled product was sold in eight, 16, and 32 ounce bottles with a best-by date falling between 09/16/2016 and 01/17/2017. It was also available in gallon-sized containers, with a best-by date of 06/16/2016 to 10/11/2016.

The recalled items were sent to locations in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota.

The fat free versions of the dressing are not included in the recall.

Customers who have experienced any quality issues from an affected bottle, or who have recently purchased a bottle in the affected date range, are encouraged to return to the store for a refund.

Consumers with questions about this recall can contact the company by phone at (800) 228-4148 or by email at contactus@dorothylynch.com.
