They're going to lose some serious
ca$$$h cheese over this!
Kraft Foods has announced that they’re recalling 96,000lbs of their Oscar Mayer wieners because the labels were switched!
So, people who are allergic to dairy may have unknowingly bought the Classic Cheese Dogs instead of the Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners.
A consumer discovered the switcheroo, informed Kraft, who informed the USDA the next day. Luckily, the Food Safety and Inspection Service hasn’t noted anyone who has been affected.
In case you’re a concerned wiener lover (aren't we all??), these are the recall specifics:
“The products were made in early March and bear the number "Est. 537H" inside the USDA mark of inspection. People with questions about the recall are being asked to contact Kraft's consumer relations department at (855) 688-4386.
The recall applies to:
—16-ounce individual consumer packages of "Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added," with a "USE BY 16 Jun 2014" date and product code "044700000632."
—Cases of 16-ounce packages that were 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."
Those cases may contain packages that are mislabeled as "Classic Wieners," according to Hodel.”
We’re just glad that no one was harmed because of the mislabeling. Allergies are nothing to mess around with!
