Kraft Recalls 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Wieners
Someone’s going to get grilled for this one. Kraft has announced that they will be recalling 96,000 pounds of their classic Oscar Mayer wieners because the large batch of packaged dogs may actually contain the Oscar Mayer “classic cheese dogs.” The company became aware of the issue on Friday when a customer issued a complaint. Despite the precautions, the Food Safety and Inspection Service has not received any other complaints, according to the Associated Press.

Kraft has said that the product labels are incorrect, and they do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs.
The affected Oscar Mayer wieners include:
16-ounce 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-ounce 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.
