Wrongly Labelled Food Packs Lead to Recall of 96,000 Pounds of Hot Dogs
Kraft Foods has issued recall for 96,000 pounds of hot dogs nationwide due to wrong label on the product. The U. S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service on Sunday announced that Kraft has issue the nationwide recall as the company thinks that some of the Classic Cheese Dogs might have unintentionally being packed in packages meant for the Classic Wieners.
As cheese is a milk product, a well known allergen, the company has taken a decision to call back the huge number of that product from the market.
The food items in the recalled lots were produced on March 2 and 3, 2014. They bear "Est. 537H" as the establishment number inside the inspection seal marked by USDA.
These hot dogs under scrutiny were sent to the distribution centres of Kraft and retail stores throughout the nation.
Reportedly the mistake caught the attention of a consumer who informed the company about it on April 18, 2014. USDA was contacted the next day by the company.
Joyce Hodel, from Kraft Corporate Affairs said, "We apologize for this situation and are working hard to communicate with consumers about it. We are investigating how this happened so we can make sure it doesn't happen again."
