96-thousand pounds of Oscar Mayer "Classic Wieners" and "Classic Cheese Dogs" hot dogs are being recalled.
The USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service announce that Kraft Foods Group, Inc., is recalling the hot dogs because they were mislabeled and may contain milk products. The government says milk is a known allergen.
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.
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. FSIS routinely conducts recall effectiveness checks to ensure that steps are taken to make certain that the product is no longer available to consumers.
