About 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners were recalled Sunday by Kraft Foods Group Inc. of Columbia, MO, because of a packaging error. Classic Cheese Dogs are contained in packaging for Classic Wieners.
The packaging error means that the ingredients are not properly listed and a known allergen, milk, is not listed. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that the cheese dogs contain pasteurized cheese.
