    It was announced Sunday that Kraft Foods Group was recalling about 96,000 pounds of Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners after realizing the packages may actually contain Classic Cheese Dogs. Since that variety is made with milk, an allergen to some that isn’t noted on the label, the company issued a recall. It took one day between a consumer contacting Kraft on April 18 about the cheese-dog mix-up to the company alerting the Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service. In contrast, it took General Motors nine years from the first complaints about the Chevrolet Cobalt to issue a recall.
