I don't believe Dawn contains ammonia. If it did it should be on the Materials Safety Data Sheet for the product and it isn't - I checked.

It's not safe to add chlorinated bleach to many things including ammonia. Perhaps the surfactants in the Dawn released gaseous ammonia which would bowl over anyone who smelled it. Their suggestion to not add bleach isn't stated as a warning, and there is no waning on the bottle about it.

Why not give it a try on one case? Soak it in some diluted Dawn for a day or so and see what happens. That would be a much harsher test than washing the cases for a short time and then rinsing off the detergent.
