Go vegetarian!
"The mislabeling was discovered by a consumer who called Kraft Foods last week." Thankful for that one diligent person though, or we'd have never known. I highly suspect this happens much more frequently than we know.
Thank you Carrie.

Thanks for promoting this. My Granddaughter can't have dairy products but in very limited amounts, therefore if she were to have had a cheese pizza and then this hot dog at another meal she would end up becoming sick. I don't give her hot dogs as she has from an early age declined meat on her own, preferring veggies and fruits. But as the article stated, for some it will make them ill or not comfortable, for others it could be deadly.

I also want to add that mistakes like this are becoming more common as people are expected to work with less staff. Every where one goes now, the few who have jobs are worked to the bone being made to do what two employees use to do, or at least picking up another half person's job. This is causing more mistakes and more of the employees to be injured. When people rush, cut corners, things around bound to happen like this. Corporate trying to get every penny it can by using as few humans as possible to do so.

So....it was a consumer that phoned Kraft Foods and reported this. This could very well have caused some to become seriously ill, especially children with lactose intolerance,
Thanks Carrie.
