Before you take another bite if that hot dog, you may want to read this.
A shock report is making cravers of the highly unhealthy “food” like product think twice: There are reports that HUMAN DNA is being found in the meat.
You are what you eat. Perhaps to the extreme in the case of hot dogs..
Clear Foods, which “uses genomic technology to analyze the world’s foods at a molecular level, ingredient by ingredient,” released a report recently that it said was designed to look at the accuracy of the content labels of several major hot dog brands.A new report, however, adds extra meaning to the phrase “you don’t want to know how the sausage gets made.”
The company analyzed 345 hot dog and sausage products from 75 brands and 10 retailers, and said they found “human DNA in 2% of the samples, and in 2/3rds of the vegetarian samples.”
Additionally, 10 percent of all vegetarian products appeared to contain meat.
Despite some of the shocking findings, Clear Foods reports “there are a number of hot dog manufacturers, large and small, that are producing high-quality hot dogs with integrity.”
Butterball, McCormick, Eckrich and Hebrew National were among the major brands that received top scores from Clear Foods. Gardein was the top specialty or regional brand.
That’s fine. They can produce the higher quality.
You know.. I think I will just continue by 20-year-tradition (I admit I ate them during the early years) and avoid this ‘food.’ And also reinforce my son’s 4 and a half year tradition of not eating them as well.
Human DNA, eh?
People wish they could be Oscar Meier wieners, I guess somehow we got the chance.
