Kraft Foods Group Inc. has issued a recall for 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners because they may contain cheese products.

Nearly one million hot dogs were incorrectly labeled as “Classic Cheese Dogs” when they were actually just the regular classics and vice versa. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said that cheese in the meat can act as an allergen because it contains milk.

The hot dogs recalled were labelled with factory plant number “Est. 537H” on the inside of the packaging and were made on March 2nd and 3rd. There have been no illnesses connected to the recall.

“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,” the FSIS said in a statement. 

The following products fall under the recall:

  • 16-ounce packages of “Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added” with “Use by 16 Jun 2014” date and product code “044700000632”
  • Cases of 16-ounce 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”
