Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing Recall

Posted on May 9, 2016 by


Tasty Toppings, Inc. is conducting a recall of its Dorothy Lynch Home Style Dressing. The product poses no health risks to consumers.

Tasty Toppings initiated the recall for products primarily shipped to Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Nebraska, and South Dakota after confirming a product quality issue with one of its ingredients. The company conducted extensive tests and identified a bacteria (lactobacillus), commonly used in foods such as yogurt as well as probiotics, that forms gas bubbles in bottles, causing the dressing to foam over or spew out when opened.

There is no health risk to ingest the affected product. Anyone with an affected bottle is to return to the store where they bought it for a refund.”

Customers can look at the “Best By” date on the neck of the bottle to determine if it is affected.

Affected “Best By” dates are:

  • 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 gallons:
    • Gallons with “Best By” dates between 6/16/16 and 10/11/16 are recalled.

All sizes of Fat Free 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. The recall information will be available on the website at and customer service personnel are available Monday – Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., to answer questions by phone at 800-228-4148, or by email at
