Kraft is recalling 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer hot dogs due to incorrect labeling, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said Sunday.

The agency said the "Classic Wieners" may instead contain "Classic Cheese Dogs." The agency said the product labels do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs. Those products were made with milk, a known allergen, which is not declared on the label.

Kraft said they were notified by a consumer on Friday, and the USDA was alerted Saturday.

The products were made in early March and have "Est. 537H" inside the USDA mark of inspection. The products affected include:

-16-ounce individual consumer packages of "Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added," with a "USE BY 16 Jun 2014" date and product code "044700000632."

-Cases of 16-ounce packages that were 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."

Those cases may contain packages that are mislabeled as "Classic Wieners," according to Joyce Hodel, a representative for Kraft Foods Group Inc.

So far there have been no reports of adverse reactions.

People with questions about the recall can contact Kraft's consumer relations department at (855) 688-4386.
