[The] Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners [were recalled] because the products may contain Classic Cheese Dogs in the Classic Wieners' packages. The product labels are incorrect, as they do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs, the US Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) announced today. The products were formulated with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the product label.

The USDA provided a photo of the packaging to the types of hot dogs that were affected.

FSIS said there have not yet been any reported reactions to consuming the hot dogs, according to the Associated Press.
