COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- T. Marzetti Company, Columbus,
Ohio is recalling a limited number of 12 fl. oz. bottles of Girard's Honey
Dijon Peppercorn (item 58105) because they may have the incorrect back
label of Girard's French Dressing (item 58015). The Girard's Honey Dijon

involved in the recall.
The recalled bottles of Girard's Honey Dijon Peppercorn Dressing were
distributed throughout the western United States (primarily California,
Washington, Oregon and Arizona).

Peppercorn with the incorrect back label are urged to return them to the
place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact
