An anti-meat group has filed a lawsuit claiming that hot dogs are so hazardous to one’s health, they should have warning labels, the Associated Press reports.
The group, called the Cancer Project, filed the lawsuit in Newark, NJ, Superior Court on behalf of three New Jersey residents. The Cancer Project is an offshoot of a pro-vegetarian organization.
The suit aims to force hot dog manufacturers to use warning labels on hot dogs. Defendants listed are Kraft Foods Inc., Sara Lee Corp., Nathan’s Famous, and the makers of Hebrew National and Sabrett brands.
The lawsuit cites a report by the American Institute for Cancer Research that stated that regular consumption of processed meat can increase the risk of colorectal and other forms of cancer.
