By Brittany Umar

Kraft Foods has issued a recall for 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer hot dogs for mistakenly containing cheese.

Due to the mislabeling, ingredients like milk, which is an allergen, are not displayed on the packaging. There have been no reports of adverse reactions from people who have eaten the hot dogs.
