Dangerous or defective products include Wish-Bone ranch dressing

West Virginia residents who love their salads with ranch dressing may want to take note of this recall. One of the most recent dangerous or defective products that has been recalled is none other than ranch dressing. Nearly 9,000 cases of Wish-Bone bottles of the salad dressing are being recalled by Pinnacle Foods Group.

Apparently, the reason for this recall is because consumers may not actually be purchasing ranch dressing, even though the bottle's label says that they are. In fact, it may be blue cheese dressing, which contains eggs. This can cause major health issues in those consumers who are allergic to eggs. In some cases, the issues could be life-threatening, especially if medical treatment is not sought and obtained in a fast enough of manner.

The bottles have a "best by" date of February 17, 2016 and were filled back in April of this year. Consumers can return the bottles for a 100 percent refund. So far, no adverse events have been reported regarding this mix-up on Pinnacle's part, who claims that they unintentionally filled thousands of 24-ounce bottles with the incorrect dressing.

It is important for West Virginia residents to realize that dangerous or defective products that have been recalled are still a danger to consumers. Manufacturers are expected to exercise a certain amount of caution when labeling products, and it appears that Pinnacle failed to do that in this case. If such a claim can be proven and it can be established that it was the manufacturer's negligence that directly caused one's injury, it may be possible to seek compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages and more.
