Hot Dogs are Dominating the News

They're getting lots and lots of publicity lately. Hot Dogs are all over the news and it's not favorable publicity. Whoever said, "it's better to get bad publicity than no publicity at all" was not referring to hot dogs.

The American Academy of Pediatrics issued a policy statement that has been "spun" by the media to make it sound more sensational. The fact remains, in addition to peanuts, popcorn, raisins, grapes and hard candy, hot dogs are a potential choking hazard.

In an excellent article by Dr. Ari Brown posted on WebMD, among other things the importance of parents cutting up a child's food is discussed. I would add to that my thoughts that parents need to always watch their children while they eat. Not just while they eat items on this choking hazard list, but when they are eating anything.

Frankly speaking, we (will) serve the best Hot Dogs!

    I agree, the hotdog industry is coming under fire a lot lately... it's as if some burger company big-wig greased an FDA official or something. Despite recent attacks on the good old American hotdog though, sales continue to go on toward positive profit margins, for the most part. It may just be my opinion, and you know MY opinion matters lol... but with all the nasty grease that drips from a McDonald's burger... Why are they picking us dogger's?
    Get back to me with your opinion on this matter at:
