WASHINGTON (CBS5) -

Incorrect labeling has prompted the recall of about 96,000 pounds of certain Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners.

The products may contain Classic Cheese Dogs in the Classic Wieners' packages.

The product labels are incorrect because they don't reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Sunday.

The products were formulated with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The following products are subject to recall:

  • Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added
    Has "USE BY 16 Jun 2014" date. 
    Product code 044700000632.
    16 oz. packages, individual consumer packages.
  • Classic Cheese Dogs Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added, and Pasteurized Cheese Product
    Has "USE BY 16 Jun 2014" date.
    Case code 00447000005300.
    Cases of 16 oz. packages, distributed to retailers.  

The products were produced on March 2 and 3, 2014, and bear the establishment number "Est. 537H" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

The products were distributed to Kraft distribution centers and in retail stores nationwide.

The problem was discovered by a consumer who notified Kraft Foods Group, Inc., in Columbia, MO., on April 18. The company contacted the USDA the following day regarding the issue.

So far, there have been no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.

Consumers with questions about the recall should contact Kraft Consumer Relations at 855- 688-4386.

Retailers with questions should contact their Kraft sales representative or supplier. If they do not know their contacts, retailers should call 855- 688-4386.
