WASHINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) — Kraft Foods is recalling approximately 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Weiners because the products may be mislabeled and contain the incorrect products.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says that the product may contain Classic Cheese Dogs in the Classic Wieners’ packages.
The product labels are incorrect, as they do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs. The cheese dogs are formulated with milk, a known allergen, which is not indicated on the product label.
The following products are subject to the recall:
— 16 oz. 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 sold on March 2-3, 2014 and bear the number “Est. 537H” inside the USDA mark of inspection. These products were distributed nationwide.
The error was discovered by an employee, who notified the company on April 18.
So far, the FSIS has not received any reports of adverse reactions to the mislabeled product. Anyone who experiences problems should contact a healthcare professional.
Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Kraft Consumer Relations at (855) 688-4386.
