According to Wikipedia.org:

"There is no fixed specification for hot dog meat, with pork and beef being the most popular. Less expensive hot dogs typically contain chicken, due to the low cost and availability of mechanically separated chicken, and some pork. Hot dogs are generally regarded as unhealthy insofar as most have high sodium and fat content. Contents can also be questionable, with cheaper types of hot dogs having been known to contain snouts, ears and organ meat blended. In recent years, manufacturers have turned to completely turkey, chicken, or vegetarian meat substitutes as well as lowering the salt content; due to changing dietary preferences in the U.S.

In general, if a manufacturer produces two different hot-dog-type sausages, "wieners" tend to contain pork, and to be the blander of the two, while "franks" tend to be all-beef, and more strongly seasoned. This is particularly true of Oscar Mayer.

A kosher hot dog is one made in accordance with Jewish dietary laws, which include a ban on pork. Kosher hot dogs are popular at some American baseball stadiums. Kosher hot dogs are similar to the kinds, kosher and non-kosher, popular in New York City, and are preferred by some consumers for their distinctive taste, texture and spicing. These premium brands are often all-beef."



You know, in case any of you were wondering.

Yeah, note to self: avoid cheapy hot dogs.

And I didn't notice before, but there's a grammatical error in that Wikipedia article - that semicolon does not belong.
