Do you know what is in the food you are eating?
For "processed Meats" such as Hot Dogs, Frankfurters, bacon, sausages etc, is another story.
The law permits for up to 15% non meat ingredients, including artificial colourings, flavourings and preservatives. Hot dogs with general labels such as "frankfurters" could contain animal products like beef lips, snout, tail gristle, blood, lung, spleen, tripe, and stomach. If chicken is added, it may be chicken skin, chicken fat, giblets even pulverised chicken bone. Bacon is loaded with higher concentrations of nitrites than other preserved meats, but hot dogs, bologna, corned beef, ham and luncheon sausage are also treated with nitrites.
