Safe, But...

Make sure that it is not made with raw or unpasteurized eggs!

Hollandaise sauce or dressing made with raw eggs, often found in restaurants, is not safe for pregnant women to eat according to WebMdBabyMed and the American Pregnancy Association state that raw eggs may contain bacteria such as E. coli or Salmonella, which may be harmful to both the pregnant woman and her baby.  However, store-bought versions made with pasteurized eggs are safe for pregnant women to ingest.
