Kraft Foods has recalled roughly 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because the packages may contain a different product.

The packages may actually contain Classic Cheese Dogs. Labels on the package do not identify milk (an allergen) and other ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in cheese dogs.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service made the announcement Sunday.

The following products are subject to recall:

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."

The products were produced on March 2-3, 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 the company on April 18, 2014. The company contacted the USDA the following day regarding the issue.  

FSIS and the company have received no reports of adverse reactions due to consumption of these products. Anyone concerned about a reaction should contact a healthcare provider.
