Pinnacle Foods Inc. issues voluntary recall of limited quantity of Wish Bone House Italian Salad Dressing

Pinnacle Foods Inc.'s Wish-Bone brand salad dressings sit on display in a supermarket in Princeton, Illinois, U.S., on Tuesday, March 4, 2014. Unilever, the world's second-biggest consumer-products maker, is seeking bidders for its Ragu pasta sauce as the company sheds food brands, people with knowledge of the matter said. Unilever last week contacted many of the companies that were approached when the company sold Wish-Bone dressings last year and expects to sell the brand for between $1.5 billion and $2 billion, two of the people said.
