Is Your Wiener Dirty? Is It Time For A Wienervention?

Do you eat hot dogs that contain any of these ingredients?

  • Sodium Nitrate (This common preservative helps meats retain their color and also keep food-borne illnesses, such as botulism, to a minimum. Animal studies have linked sodium nitrates to an increased risk of cancer. )
  • Sodium Diacetate (A combination of sodium acetate and acetic acid, it helps to fight fungus and bacterial growth and is often used as an artificial flavor for salt and vinegar chips)
  • Sodium Erythorbate (A sodium salt of erythorbic acid, it has replaced the use of sulfites in many foods and serves as a preservative and to help keep meat-based products pink. Some people report side effects, including dizziness, gastrointestinal issues, headaches and, if consumed in large quantities, kidney stones)
  • Mechanically Separated Meat ( As the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) describes it,this “paste-like and batter-like poultry product [is] produced by forcing bones, with attached edible tissue, through a sive or similar device under high pressure.” Unlike mechanically separated beef or pork, it can be present in hot dogs in “any amount.” Pork: Per 1994 USDA rules, any “meat” can be taken off the bone by “advanced meat recovery (AMM) machinery” that separates the edibles from the inedibles without smashing the bone. Beef: After the outbreak of mad cow disease, the USDA stopped allowing any mechanically separated beef in food.)
  • Hooves (Just EWW)

Do you eat hot dogs made with meat from animals given daily doses of antibiotics and hormones to make them grow bigger – faster?

Is your motto “Don’t ask, don’t tell” when it comes to the  hot dog ingredients?

If you or someone you love answered “yes” to any of these questions, then it’s time for a #WIENERVENTION.

Applegate hot dogs contain only beef, water, salt & spices and the meat comes from animals that are humanely raised without antibiotics and hormones – which is why they’re so tasty!

    I LOVE my Applegate Farms wieners with raw sauerkraut and classic yellow mustard. It’s awesome being able to eat a hot dog without fretting over what horrors are inside it.
