Undeclared anchovies leads to Brite Harbor Caesar Dressing & Dip recall

More than 13,000 packages, also known as pillows, of 1.5 oz Brite Harbor Caesar Dressing & Dip have been recalled by Litehouse Inc. because they may contain undeclared anchovies. The recall was announced by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration after Litehouse informed them of the concern, stemming from a packaging error.


Recalled Product:

Brite Harbor Caesar Dressing & Dip

1.5 oz package

Lot Code 03 071321 16002


Customers and retailers in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Utah received the recalled product. They have each been informed of the recall. A package manufacturing error appears to be the culprit here. The front of the Brite Harbor Caesar Dressing & Dip was marked as “Caesar”, while the back indicated it was in fact “Blue Cheese”. 

If you’re allergic to anchovies, consumption of the undeclared allergen could lead to minor and sometimes serious complications. So far, no illnesses have been reported related to this recall. If you’re in possession of this recalled dressing, you should discard it or return it to your retailer for a refund.
