New York, N, United States (4E) – Kraft will recall 96,000 pounds of hot dogs due to wrong packaging labels, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said on Sunday.

Authorities said that packages for the Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners may have contained cheese dogs, but the packaging does not advise consumers that the product contain milk, according to U.S. federal officials in a statement.

The labels on the product do not reflect the pasteurized cheese ingredients in the cheese dogs, according to the statement.

A consumer notified the company of the problem on April 18. The following day, Kraft notified federal officials, the statement said.

Kraft said on its Facebook page that it was voluntarily recalling the hot dogs because they may be mislabeled. The 16-ounce packages were manufactured in March and distributed throughout the U.S.
