An organization called Clear Foods says some brands of hot dogs contain human DNA.
Researchers analyzed 345 hot dogs and sausages from 75 different brands sold at 10 retailers, and found human DNA in 2 percent of its hot dog samples — and two-thirds of the vegetarian samples.
Additionally, 10 percent of vegetarian products tested contained meat.
While 14.4 percent of the hot dogs and sausages tested by Clear Foods “were problematic,” the company also shared some positive news. Butterball, McCormick, Eckrich and Hebrew National received the top scores for quality hot dogs among major brands.
