Problems Found in Many Hot Dogs and Sausages
#1
DNA Study of 345 Samples of Hot Dogs and Sausages

Quote:Clear Food, an independent company that analyzes food at the molecular level, found that 14.4 percent of the hot dogs it tested were "problematic."

Clear Food reported that it found human DNA in six of the 345 samples, or 2 percent of all samples tested. Four of the six samples that tested positive for human DNA were vegetarian products.

Other ingredients such as chicken, lamb, turkey and beef showed up in samples that were not listed on the product's packaging, according to Clear Food, which did note that no pork was found in the "100% Kosher" products it tested.

For non-meat eaters the results are particularly eye-opening: 10 percent of the vegetarian products tested contained meat (chicken in the veggie breakfast sausages and pork in the veggie hot dogs), and four of the 21 vegetarian samples had "hygienic issues." Moreover, the amount of protein listed in some of the vegetarian products exaggerated the amount of protein in the item by as much as 250 percent, according to the report.

Clear Food does not release the names of the poor-performing products. It does, however, score products based on hygiene, safety and accurate labeling. Major brands including Butterball, Boar's Head, Hebrew National, Oscar Meyer, Jennie O and Trader Joe's all received high marks. Check out the Clear Food site for the complete list of products Clear Food regards as high quality. Clear Food is the consumer outreach arm of Clear Labs, a B2B food analytics startup based in California. The hot dog and sausage report was self-funded, according to Clear Food.

The presence of human DNA in six of the samples tested has drawn a lot of comment, including on the Late Night Talk shows. I wonder if we have discovered what really happened to Jimmy Hoffa! Clear Food did not list the names of the products in which it found the human DNA (obviously fearing lawsuits). I wonder which ones are products of companies that are and have been controlled by organized crime. I certainly hope the FBI will get involved in an investigation of this.

Clear Food included Morningstar Farms products in its list of samples it tested that were not problematic. (I give a sigh of relief!) Morningstar Farms was a subsidiary of Worthington Foods, which was bought by Kellogg in 1999. Morningstar Farms meat analogs can be found in Kroger stores, and Meijer stores here in the Detroit area.

Hebrew National hot dogs were also among the samples tested that were not problematic. So I guess they take their Kosher standards seriously.

Human DNA probably from fertilizer in the soil. Mexican products have had such fertilizer contamination for decades.

Interesting. You could well be right on that. It would we well worth testing imported oriental foods. S13

The old Polish couple who lived down the street used to use their own human feces as a fertilizer in their garden. (You know who I mean, Bill. He was a friend and co-worker of Dad's.) It's one reason why we always politely declined whenever they offered us any produce from their garden.

I don't think that sort of thing would explain human DNA in hot dogs and sausages, however.

You should have been stationed in Korea, in the early 70s when I was there. We were not supposed to ever eat Korean food, but it was routinely violated. Myself included.

Once you have been around HoneyWagons and HoneyBuckets, it becomes more routine. For instance, right before leaving country, my tank company was on maneuvers, and my driver and I were stopped next to a rice field, waiting for one of the platoons to arrive at our location.

We were both sitting in the MUTT and eating our "C"s, when I happened to look over next to where we had pulled up. And there was a large in ground container that contained all the wonderful honey sitting there, just waiting to be distributed over the field. I thought to myself, "Can you imagine that. Here I am eating "C"s and sitting next to a huge bucket of shit. And it doesn't bother me one bit." I knew right then that I have become full acclimated to Korea. S6

Or maybe it indicated that you had been there altogther too long. Like the veteran missionary who told the newby that at first when he would see insects in his rice, he would throw it out. But after being there a while, if he saw insects in his rice, he would just pick them out and go on and eat the rice. After a further time, he might go ahead and eat the rice, insects and all. The veteran said that when he began picking up insects and putting them into his rice, that meant he had been there too long!

Two things Ron:
First, I totally believe that in order to build up immunities, it is best to try "eating a little dirt", as that article I once posted called for. Trying to achieve 100% sanitary conditions can lower immunities.
Second, a little extra protein can't be all that bad. S5

Leviticus 11:22 says that locusts, beetles, and grasshoppers are clean in terms of using them for flesh food. Insects that feed on plants would probably be comparatively safe. They wouldn't concentrate toxins in the environment like carnivores and scavengers would.
