I made a quick grocery store trip this morning. I needed some fresh veggies and seasonings. I got a bag of Tampico ground oregano to refill one shaker, and I went to pick up a shaker of Mrs. Dash and noticed the label looked different. I don't use much salt on my food, but I put Mrs. Dash on just about everything I cook. I got out my reading glasses, and noticed that Mrs. Dash got fired. Now the label just says "Dash".

I know many other brands are suddenly trying to become more politically correct, but Mrs. Dash? Another old label bites the dust.

Stop looking to be outraged about everything. It wasn't a PC move. They just wanted a name that was shorter and simpler.

What a bunch of marketing drivel. My guess is they decided that "Mrs" implied "old" and "boomer" and they wanted to be "more twentysomething/millennial" sounding. It's a wonder they didn't call it "i-Dash." Just think of the marketing tie in there. Get a recipe on the iPhone to cook in the i-pan on the i-stove using i-Dash because i-hungry.

I suspect that Mrs. was eliminated because Ms. Dash looked weirder than simply Dash. But the PC type changes in food marketing are widespread.

Aunt Jemima, Mrs Butterworth and Uncle Ben 'retired' earlier this year amid the BLM protests. Eskimo Pie is getting a name change, and the American Indian woman has a.ready been removed from Land of Lakes butter packaging.

It's not a new phenomenon. Sambo's Restaurants had to change the name of their location (300+ ??) in the late 70's.

Exactly! Overpaid idiots in 3-piece suits trying to categorize everyone according to a set of stereotypes.

I call BS -- NOTHING is ever that simple on Madison Avenue.

Exactly. It's just people looking to be offended so they can complain about how everyone's offended.

And they fail to see the irony.

I know, right? Do these people seriously have such an emotional attachment to a friggin brand that this stuff bothers them?
