Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners are part of a new recall by Kraft Foods Group, the company said on April 21. Kraft is recalling approximately 96,000 pounds of wieners due to a labeling discrepancy.

Oscar Mayer Recall

Some of the products in question may contain Classic Cheese Dogs, thus rendering the product labels incorrect, since they don’t mention pasteurized cheese. The dogs were formulated with milk, a known allergen.

The following packages, produced from March 2-3, 2014.

Oscar Mayer packages with establishment number “Est. 537H” 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 U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said the product labels are incorrect and do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs. Those products were made with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

It said the problem was discovered by a consumer who notified Kraft on Friday. The company alerted the USDA the following day, according to the statement.

The Food Safety and Inspection Service said it has not received reports of adverse reactions. A representative for the agency wasn’t immediately available for comment.

A representative for Kraft Foods Group Inc., Joyce Hodel, said in an email that the hot dogs were made in a plant in Columbia, Mo.

The products were made in early March and bear the number “Est. 537H” inside the USDA mark of inspection. People with questions about the recall are being asked to contact Kraft’s consumer relations department at (855) 688-4386.
