A Covington company is recalling 16-ounce jars of spinach vinaigrette because labels don't state that bread crumbs used to make it included eggs, soy and wheat.
Jack Cousins, owner of Cousins Products LLC, says about 300 12-jar cases were sold in stores in Louisiana and southern Mississippi and through the internet to Texas, Florida, Illinois and Virginia. He says nobody has reported an allergic reaction, and the omission was found during a state health department inspection.
The company is recalling all jars sold from June 2009 until now. Cousins says he's relabeling them to show they include the potential allergens. He says spinach vinaigrette is one of three products the company makes. The others are a second salad dressing and a salsa.
