The people at Oscar Myer will put anything in their mouths

Have you read the ingredients on a pack of hot dogs? Meat parts (swill) and sodium nitrate. No wonder our kids are coming down with Leakemia and brain tumors, yet the hot dog companies continue to push their products because they are selling billions of them and the money is flowing.

      Hi Johnny -- the Boston board is for posts specific to Boston chow. The General board (link below) is for general topics like your hotdog thoughts. I bet you'll get lots of discussion there!

        In and of themselves, I have no objection to the use of meat parts; hey, it's a helluva lot better than simply wasting them. Many meat parts are perfectly edible. There are plenty of issues on food production out there, but if we are going to be eating animals, we should be using as much of what we kill as possible....
