(CNN) -- The makers of Wish-Bone Ranch Salad dressing are recalling thousands of bottles of the popular product because they contain blue cheese dressing instead.

Because blue cheese dressing contains eggs, those accidentally-filled products could be dangerous for anyone with an egg allergy.

New Jersey-based Pinnacle Foods Group said blue cheese dressing was accidentally filled into 8,678 cases of 24-ounce bottles labeled as Wish-Bone Ranch Salad Dressing.

"Those people who have allergies or severe sensitivity to eggs run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product," Pinnacle said. But it is still safe to eat for people who are not allergic to eggs.

Egg allergies strike mostly children and usually lead to skin rashes, nasal congestion or vomiting, according to the Mayo Clinic, but there is little danger of life-threatening anaphylaxis.

The bottles of dressing affected were filled on April 23, 2015, by a contract company, Pinnacle said. Consumers can identify them by their "best by" date of "Feb 17 16," and may return them for a full refund.

Pinnacle said it notified the Food and Drug Administration about the issue, and has advised distributors and retailers of the product to remove affected bottles from their assortments.

Consumers can find more information on the FDA website.

    The neon sign is a caricature of an African-American man, with a porter's cap, with the words Coon Chicken Inn written inside the mouth. The issue came up after a person attending a company Christmas party on Wednesday night at Cook's Garage noticed the sign hanging on the wall.
