Hot Dogs Should Carry Cancer Warning Labels Says US Non Profit Group
A US non-profit organization filed a lawsuit on Wednesday asking a New Jersey county court to force food companies to put labels warning of cancer risks on any hot dogs they sell in New Jersey.
Described by the Los Angeles Times (LAT) as a vegan advocacy group, Cancer Project, wants food companies like Oscar Mayer and Hebrew National, big names in the hot dog world, to put labels on their hot dogs warning that eating this product and other processed meats "increases the risk of cancer".
President of the Cancer Project, Neal Barnard, who is an adjunct professor at the George Washington University medical school in Washington, DC, told LAT that:
"Just as tobacco causes lung cancer, processed meats are linked to colon cancer."
"Companies that sell hot dogs are well aware of the danger, and their customers deserve the same information," he added.
