96,000 pounds of hot dogs recalled due to misbranding

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Kraft Foods Group, Inc., is recalling around 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because the products may have classic cheese dogs in the classic wieners' packages.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced Sunday that the product labels are wrong because they do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs.

Authorities said the products were made with milk, a known allergen and it is not 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.

A consumer called the company on April 18, 2014. The company contacted the USDA the following day regarding the issue.
