When Did It Become So Difficult To Find Hot Dogs Not Made With Chicken?

So, I picked up some "Bar S" Jumbo Franks last week and was very disappointed after eating one discovering that they were made from chicken, and pork and beef. I can't stand that chicken taste in a hot dog. I want a "real" hot dog ya' know? So I go back to the supermarket today to pickup some proper franks and was shocked to have to search for franks that didn't include chicken. When did the default hot dog in America include chicken?
That's one of the reasons I only buy kosher beef hotdogs. One of my favorites is Hebrew National.
I'll have to check the labels. I didn't realize this had happened. Maybe that's why hot dogs seem so much blander now.
I'm not sure they are really difficult to find. The hot dogs not specifically labeled "beef", "chicken" or "turkey" are where you get the chicken/pork/beef combo. Had you bought Bar S BEEF Jumbo Franks, you would have had exactly what you wanted :-).
Now, if your store doesn't carry them, that's something else.
We usually stick to Hebrew National.
