Kraft Recalls 48 Tons of Hot Dogs
Due to a mix-up in packaging, Kraft has announced a recall of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners. Find out if you've got bad dogs here.
Apparently, somebody put the wrong label on some cheese dogs, and they've been packed in Classic Wiener packages. The official reason for the recall given by Kraft is due to "misbranding and undeclared allergens."
What does this mean? If you're lactose-intolerant or allergic to cheese, you may have accidentally bought cheese dogs thinking they were regular hot dogs. If you're not allergic to cheese, you may just be in for a hot dog-shaped surprise.
This is a "Class One" recall, which means it's a health hazard situation where there is a reasonable probability that the use of the product will cause serious, adverse health consequences or death.
Here's the products that have been recalled:
- 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”
- Cases of 16 oz. packages –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”
