You might want to rethink that hot dog…
Earlier this July, True Activist released an article listing the many acceptable and disturbing ingredients commonly found in hot dogs. While that – and the World Health Organization’s recent declaration that processed meats cause cancer – dissuaded few, evidence that human DNA is in numerous brands of hot dogs might retire the frank fascination soon enough. As 10 News reports, the company Clear Foods, which “uses genomic technology to analyze the world’s foods at a molecular level, ingredient by ingredient,” recently found traces of human DNA when examining 345 hot dog and sausage products from 75 brands and 10 retailers. The report was conducted to look at the accuracy of the content labels of several major hot dog brands. What they found is disgusting, to say the least.
Human DNA was found “in 2% of the samples, and in 2/3rds of the vegetarian samples.” In addition, 10 percent of all vegetarian products appeared to contain meat. Despite the unwanted add-ons in some of the hot dogs, Clear Foods reports that “there are a number of hot dog manufacturers, large and small, that are producing high-quality hot dogs with integrity.” Some of the better high-quality brands include Butterball, McCormick, Eckrich and Hebrew National. Gardein scored the highest in the specialty and regional categories. What are your thoughts on this news? Comment below and share this article!
