The tweet read:
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, Kraft's "Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners" may instead contain the company's "Classic Cheese Dogs."The agency went on to say that product labels that do not accurately reflect the ingredients in the product are liable for recall when a mistake is found. Kraft's "Classic Cheese Dogs" contain pasteurized cheese made with milk, which was not declared on the label for dogs produced March 2-3. Some consumers have allergies to milk, and in some cases allergic reactions can be life-threatening. Some other consumers have intolerance to lactose, a component in milk.
The FSIS said in its statement that Kraft was alerted by a consumer who spotted the problem on April 18. Kraft then notified federal officials the next day.

If a reaction occurs, however, the FSIS advises consumers to contact their health care providers. The dogs were labeled with the number "Est. 537H" in the USDA inspection mark, and were distributed across the U.S. At the time of publication, the author had no position in any of the funds mentioned.
