Kraft recalls 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer wieners

NEW YORK (AP) - Kraft foods is recalling 96,000 pounds of its Oscar Mayer wieners because they may mistakenly contain cheese.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's food safety and inspection service said Sunday that packages of Kraft's “Oscar Mayer classic wieners” may instead contain the company's “classic cheese dogs.”

The agency says 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 and the known allergen 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.
