Tasty Toppings Inc. is voluntarily recalling its Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing bottles due a product quality issue.

The bottles were primarily shipped to Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska and South Dakota.

Officials said that the product poses no health risks to consumers and added their Fat Free Dorothy Lynch Dressing is not included in the recall.

"After conducting extensive tests, we have identified a product quality issue with one of our ingredients. A harmless bacteria (lactobacillus), commonly found in food products such as yogurt and probiotics, is causing gas bubbles to form inside sealed bottles of Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing," officials said in the statement.

Officials added that it caused the dressing to foam or spew out of the bottles when opened.

Anyone who purchased a bottle of dressing, they are urged to  look at the "Best By" date on the neck of the bottle to determine if it has been affected.


  • Home Style 8, 16, or 32 ounce bottles:   

Bottles with "Best By" dates between 9/16/16 and 1/7/17 are recalled.

  • Home Style gallon size:   

Bottles with "Best By" dates between 6/16/16 and 10/11/16 are recalled.

Officials said if anyone opened the bottle within the date range and did not experience any issues, they can decide to either discard the bottle or continue using the product.
