Kraft is issuing a big recall today.  Incorrect packaging labels are causing 96,000 pounds of hot dogs to be recalled.  The packages were labeled Oscar Mayer Classic Wieners but they may contain cheese dogs.  Also, the packaging doesn't advise consumers the dogs may contain milk, which is an allergen to some.  A customer noticed the problem and notified Kraft on Friday.  The company quickly notified federal officials.

If you were out driving around this holiday weekend, you probably noticed that gas prices higher than they were the last couple of weeks.  A gallon of regular unleaded jumped nine cents in the past two weeks.  That brings the total increase in the last ten weeks to 40-cents a gallon.  According to the recent Lundberg survey, the average price for a gallon of regular is $3.69. The lowest price is $3.29 in Salt Lake City; the highest is $4.26 a gallon in Los Angeles.

If you're looking for an iPhone 5S, Radio Shack may be the place to get it. Radio Shack is offering the phones for $99 - half the usual price! Plus, if you're trading in an older model iPhone, you may be able to get the new one for free!  Of course, a two-year contract is required with either AT&T, Verizon or Sprint.
