Dangers of Hotdogs

This blog is relatively new, but I’ve been blogging about certain kinds of food ethics issues on my Business Ethics Blog for years.

Here’s a topic that has been on my mind recently: hotdog safety. The basic problem is that kids sometimes choke on hotdogs: they’re just about the perfect size to seal a child’s throat. Hotdogs are not a huge risk, over all, but among foods they represent a higher-than-usual risk.

Rather than repeat what I’ve said before, I’ll just point you to these 2 previous blog entries of mine:
Are Hotdogs Unreasonably Dangerous?
Labelling Dangerous Foods (for Kids)
