Grilled Hot Dogs and BunsThanks to a consumer, Kraft was alerted to a packing error involving 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners. Apparently, there isn't anything wrong with the hot dogs themselves but the error in packaging may result in packages containing Classic Cheese Dogs instead of the regular hot dogs. Therefore, the labels don't reflect that they contain milk.

To some, this would not be any big deal. For those that are allergic or lactose intolerant, this could pose a serious health threat.

According to the USDA the products subject to recall have the number “Est. 537H” inside the USDA inspection mark on the packaging.The 16-ounce packages were produced in March and distributed throughout the United States. The recall targets the following two categories:

1. 16-ounce individual consumer packages of “Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added,” with a “USE BY 16 Jun 2014” date and product code “044700000632.”

2. Cases of 16-ounce packages that were 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.”
