Kraft Recalls Oscar Mayer Hot Dogs: We Have All the Details​

Few foods seem as perfect for springtime and the start of baseball season as juicy hot dogs with all the trimmings on top. But you may want to hold off on indulging in the all-American food tradition until you read this. Kraft Foods Group is recalling 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because of a possible mix-up in labeling in which some packages may contain Classic Cheese Dogs.

The cheese dogs are made with milk -- which could cause an allergic reaction in some people who assume they are about to sink their teeth into a plain hot dog.

Here are all of the details you'll need to know to stay safe.

The recall is for 16-oz. individual packages of "Classic Wieners Made With Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added" that have a USE BY date of June 16, 2014 and the product code 044700000632. The recall also affects cases of 16-oz. packages labeled "Classic Cheese Dogs Made With Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added, and Pasteurized Cheese Product" with a USE BY date of June 16, 2014 and the case code 00447000005300.

The products in question were produced on March 2 to 3, 2014 and were distributed to stores across the nation, so we should all check our freezers before deciding to make it a BBQ night. If you have a recalled package, it will contain the establishment number "Est. 537H" inside the USDA mark of inspection.

Thankfully, no one has reported having an adverse reaction to the cheese dogs, and Kraft seems to have tackled the problem before it became a major problem.

I was waiting for it to be a huge thing like the Taco Bell meat or something. Spit it out if it's cheese. Nobody dies from the taste of cheese in their mouth. It's not like a peanut allergy or something where touching it can cause anaphylaxis. Way to be waaaaay overly dramatic with the title and article.

To answer the question, an all beef Hebrew National dog is eaten with ketchup, relish, and onion. Yum!

actually people actually like from peanuts from ingesting dairy products. they can have an anaphylactic reaction 2 lactose found in any dairy products. It's not very common that people have that severe reaction me myself would just vomit and get diarrhea if I ate that but I do know a lot of people who have to actually put duct tape on there dairy products in the refrigerator because their child is so allergic that it would kill them if they drink milk by mistake or accidentally ate yogurt

Actually austinsmommy, my brother in law cant handle Dairy whatsoever. My husband kissed him on the forehead an hour after drinking egg nog and within 10 minutes his face started to swell and he started hyperventilating to the point he needed to be rushed to the hospital. Know YOUR facts sweetie.

Yes, you can die from a milk allergy. Here in the South, many people have been exposed to galactose from tick bites. Those people will have anaphylactic reactions to mammalian meat or dairy products. Rare in the rest of the country, but thousands are affected here. Plus, any allergy to the protein in milk has the potential to cause an anaphylactic reaction. Myself, I just have a severe asthma attack and itchy ears, throat and skin that lasts several days. Of course, I have the severe diarrhea, but I can deal with that better than not being able to breathe or swallow. The only true anaphylactic reaction I've ever had was to penicillin, but I get sick enough from milk that I have to take a week's worth of steroids to breathe. I am terrified to eat at a restaurant. So, I couldn't imagine eating something at home I thought would be safe and ending up at he emergency room.

As others have already pointed out, a true dairy allergy (not lactose intolerance) is EXACTLY like a peanut allergy. Unfortunately, I have experience with both: I have an older child allergic to peanuts and tree nuts and a 3-year-old allergic to dairy and eggs. Only one of my kids has ever ended up in the ER after a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction. While on vacation my little girl was given potato chips that contained milk. Thanks to an epinephrine injection and the quick-acting doctors at the hospital, she is fine, but believe me, managing a dairy allergy is extremely difficult in our society, especially because of misinformation like that given by the above poster. This recall is VERY serious to many of us.
