Massive Hot Dog Recall Issued Amid Safety Concerns
Nearly 100,000 pounds of a popular brand of hot dogs are being recalled because of possible safety issues.
Kraft Foods says packages of its ‘Classic Cheese Dogs’ were labeled and sold as ‘Classic Weiners,’ problematic for those with dairy allergies, as the product isn’t labeled as containing milk.
The recall applies to the 16 oz. packages you’d likely buy at the store, and cases of 16 oz. packages which would have been sent to retailers nationwide.
If you’ve recently bought Oscar Mayer hot dogs, check the package for the following info:
- 16 oz. packages of ‘Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added’ with “USE BY 16 Jun 2014” date and product code ‘044700000632’
- Cases of 16 oz. packages 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”
The hot dogs are fine to eat unless you have a milk allergy (or you think cheese dogs are gross.)
Anyone with questions about the recall can call Kraft Consumer Relations at 855-688-4386.
And maybe next time you listen to me when it comes to making hot dogs.
