KANSAS CITY, Mo. Check your fridge — Pinnacle Foods Inc. is recalling a limited quantity of Wish-Bone House Italian Salad Dressing after the label omitted two allergen ingredients, milk and eggs.

People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to milk or eggs may run the risk of a serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume the dressing.

The company, which distributes Wish-Bone products, voluntarily initiated the recall after a customer noticed the bottles were mislabeled. Pinnacle Foods said the health and safety of their consumers is their top priority.

A total of 7,768 cases of the recalled product in 15-oz., bottles were sold nationwide with a "Best If Used By" date of Jan. 13, 2019 labeled on the neck of the bottle. Only those bottles were affected and are subject to recall.

Customers who purchased the recalled product should not consume it, but return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
