Undeclared. Anchovies. Two words I never thought I'd use consecutively. Until today.
Nashville's legendary Mrs. Grissom's Salads has
recalled its cheese spreads, dips and pimento cheese spread
due to undeclared anchovies.
No, undeclared anchovies aren't small fish that have yet to announce their intentions to run for public office. They're simply anchovies that weren't included on the list of ingredients, thus putting people with fish allergies unknowingly at risk.
The anchovies were introduced into the products via Worcestershire sauce. Since Worcestershire sauce has always contained anchovies, one would assume that the product has always contained anchovies. Perhaps this particular batch simply lacked the proper ingredient list.
Consumers are encouraged to return the products in question to the place of purchase for a full refund.
I guess one man's poisson
is another man's poison.
You've been spared several even more excruciating fish jokes that I have struggled, against every instinct encoded in my DNA, to keep to myself. I guess I'm feeling benevolent today, and besides, allergic reactions are no laughing matter.
And neither are my jokes.
