Oscar Mayer Wiener Recall
WASHINGTON (WGGB) – Kraft Foods Group Inc is recalling recalling approximately 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because the products may contain Classic Cheese Dogs in the Classic Wieners’ packages. The product labels are incorrect, as they do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs.
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”

The products were produced on March 2-3, 2014, and were distributed to Kraft distribution centers and in retail stores nationwide.
The problem was discovered by a consumer who notified the company on Friday. There have been no reports of illness from this mix up in packaging. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
