Kraft Recalls Hot Dogs

WASHINGTON (CBS 2/Fox 28) -- The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today that Kraft Foods Group, Inc. is recalling approximately 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because the products may be mis-labeled.

The packages may actually contain Classic Cheese Dogs.  The product labels are incorrect and do not reflect the ingredients associated with the cheese dogs.  The products contain milk, a known allergen, 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.     

The problem was discovered by a consumer who notified the company on April 18, 2014. The company contacted the USDA the following day regarding the issue.  

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

The FSIS has not yet released lists of distributors who carried the product, so it is not clear if any consumers in Iowa are affected.
