Dirty Hot Dogs And More: Vegans Beware
I probably buy less than one package of hot dogs a year, even though I love them, because I know what’s in them is the stuff that dog food makers reject :-) Nathan’s and Hebrew National are my favorites. Because Hebrew National is kosher I figure if I’m going buy a package of hot dogs I want the cleanest possible version. Recently a fascinating study by Clear Food geonomically analyzed 345 samples and 75 brands of hot dogs and sausages, and the findings were not what you might expect. Bizarrely the study found HUMAN DNA in 2% (6 samples) of the samples (!), but 2/3 of those samples were in VEGETARIAN products. Does this mean somebody lost a finger in the grinder? Spit in the mix? They didn’t elaborate on this oddity. Another bombshell for Vegetablearians is most of the POOR HYGIENE issues were found in a whopping 20% of the vegetarian products. Also 10% of the vegetarian products contained MEAT. The ingredients on the label may or may not not be accurate; labels of some vegetarian products exaggerated the amount of protein in the item by as much as 2.5 times. Holy cow! Vegans/Vegetarians who believe they are eating healthy need to know that they are being had, big time. Blind faith is exactly that: Blind.
