Oscar Mayer Classic wieners

Kraft Foods Group is recalling about 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because the products may contain Classic Cheese Dogs in the Classic Wieners' packages.

The United States Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service says the product labels are incorrect and do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs. They say the products have a known allergen, milk, which is not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

•    16 oz. packages –individual consumer packages– of “Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added” with “USE BY 16 Jun 2014” date and product code “044700000632”
•    Cases of 16 oz. packages –distributed to retailers– of “Classic Cheese Dogs Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added, and Pasteurized Cheese Product” with “USE BY 16 Jun 2014” date and case code “00447000005300”

The products were produced on March 2-3, 2014, and bear the establishment number “Est. 537H” inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products were distributed to Kraft distribution centers and in retail stores nationwide.
