Kraft Foods has issued a recall for 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer hot dogs for mistakenly containing cheese.
According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service, Kraft's "Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners" may actually contain its "Classic Cheese Dogs" instead due to a packaging error. Due to the mislabeling, ingredients like milk, which is an allergen, are not displayed on the packaging. The hot dogs were produced on March 2 and 3 and are marked with the establishment number 537H on the inside of the packaging. They were distributed to retail store nationwide.
The mistake was discovered by a consumer who notified Kraft on Friday. The USDA was notified by Kraft the following day. There is said to be no issue with the actual product itself and according to the USDA, there have been no reports of adverse reactions from people who have eaten the hot dogs.
