Beware a wiener in cheese dog clothing
Call it a classic mix-up.
Kraft is recalling 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners that are actually Classic Cheese Dogs in the wrong packaging, the U.S. Department of Agriculture announced Sunday.
The product labels are incorrect and don’t reflect ingredients like milk, which is an allergen for many people, according to a statement posted on the USDA website. The recall specifically applies to 16-oz packages of “Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added” and cases of ““Classic Cheese Dogs Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added, and Pasteurized Cheese Product.”
The mix-up was discovered by a consumer who notified Kraft on April 18, and Kraft notified the FDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS.) Neither the company nor FSIS has received any reports of illnesses caused by the mistake.
