|WESTCHESTER, Ill., March 31, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- Bay Valley Foods is recalling
535 cases of "America's Choice(R) Classic Caesar Dressing" because some of the

including A&P, Super Fresh, Food Basics USA, and Waldbaum's in Connecticut,
New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New York, and the District of Columbia.
