Kraft is recalling 96,000 pounds of hot dogs because packaging labels were incorrect, federal officials said Sunday.
The Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners packages may have contained cheese dogs, officials said, but the packaging doesn't advise consumers that they contain milk, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Food Safety and Inspection Service said in a statement.
The product labels "do not reflect the ingredients associated with the pasteurized cheese in the cheese dogs," the statement said.
Australian pizza is now officially the best in the world.
Well, sort of.
Judges at last weekend's Campionato Mondiale Della Pizza (Pizza World Championship) held in Parma, Italy, awarded the world's top margherita pizza title to Australian chef Johnny Di Francesco, owner of the 400 Gradi restaurant in Brunswick, a Melbourne suburb.
Di Francesco, 36, beat more than 600 competitors from 35 countries to take home the Specialita Traditionale Garantita pizza prize in the annual competition.
The win and subsequent publicity has made the small restaurant he owns in his hometown an overnight sensation.
"It's been an amazing reaction," Di Francesco tells CNN. "Honestly, I just went to Naples to do what I love. I didn't think it was going to make such a stir."
