Oscar Mayer Hot Dog Recall Issued Over Cheese Weiner Mix-up
Kraft foods has announced a recall for approximately 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners, due to a risk that they may accidentally contain cheese dogs, putting consumers at risk of known allergens that could cause severe adverse health consequences.
The Oscar Mayer hot dog recall was announced by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) on April 20, after Kraft Foods received at least one customer complaint that a package of Classic Wieners contained Cheese Wieners.
The manufacturer has determined that the problem occurred due to a labeling mix-up.
