Harris Corp. has new CEO

Harris Corp. named former NCR Corp. president Howard Lance to replace retiring chief executive officer Phillip Farmer, who has been head of the communications-equipment maker since 1995.

Mr. Lance's appointment is effective Feb. 1, Harris said in a statement. Mr. Lance, 47, was president of Dayton-based NCR, the world's largest seller of automated-teller machines, before he agreed to leave the company in September.

Mr. Farmer, 64, who was named president, CEO and chairman of Harris in 1995, will remain chairman until the Melbourne, Fla.-based company's fiscal year ends in June, Harris said. Mr. Lance was also named president and elected to the company's board.

Before he joined NCR in July 2001, Mr. Lance spent 17 years at Emerson Electric Co., a St. Louis-based maker of power supplies for telecommunications equipment.

Mislabeled salad dressing recalled

A Columbus company is recalling bottles of salad dressing mislabeled as "Two-Lightful Blue Cheese" dressing because inside is a caesar dressing that contains anchovy - posing a risk of life-threatening reactions to people allergic to the salty fish.

The salad dressing was sold nationwide. Recalled are 12-ounce bottles labeled as T. Marzetti Co.'s Two-Lightful Blue Cheese dressing that bear the UCP code 70200-51018, with an expiration date of 08/03/03W.

Because of a labeling mixup, the bottles actually contain caesar salad dressing made with powdered anchovies, according to the company and the Food and Drug Administration.

Consumers allergic to the fish should not eat the recalled dressing but return it to the place of purchase for a refund. Consumers with questions can call T. Marzetti at 614-846-2232.
