As the weather warms up and we fire up our grills, most of us will enjoy hot dogs and hamburgers. But before you pop your dogs on the grill, you might want to check to see if they’re part of a huge Oscar Mayer recall.

Kraft Foods is recalling 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer hot dogs because they might contain cheese, which could be bad news for those with an intolerance or allergy.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says packages of “Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners” might instead contain the ingredients for Oscar Mayer’s “Classic Cheese Dogs.”

The labels on the packages of the wieners is incorrect and don’t reveal the correct ingredients, which include pasteurized cheese.

The products are included in the recall:

  •  16 oz. individual consumer packages of “Classic Wieners Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added” with “USE BY 16 Jun 2014” and product code “044700000632”
  • Cases of 16 oz. packages of “Classic Cheese Dogs Made with Turkey & Chicken, Pork Added, and Pasteurized Cheese Product” with “USE BY 16 Jun 2014” and case code “00447000005300”

If you’ve got questions regarding this recall, please call Kraft Consumer Relations at 855-688-4386.
