The old "Simpsons" joke about the questionable provenance of hot dogs just took a turn for the worse: in fact, a lot of them contain not only low-quality meats, but also human DNA.
A recent study conducted by Clear Foods examined the contents of 345 hot dog samples from 75 brands distributed by 10 different retailers and found many had a combination of meats not listed on the label. For example, chicken, beef, and lamb were all found in samples that weren't supposed to include chicken, beef, or lamb. But it gets worse.
Pork was found in items listed as chicken or turkey sausages, meaning that those who don't eat pork for religious reasons were tricked into sinning by a dishonest tubular meat. But it gets worse.
