Is There Pink Slime in Hot Dogs?

(Last Updated On: March 23, 2012)

Ever since the pink slime debate become household news, I have been getting a lot of people on my blog that are searching for answers to what pink slime is in and what it is not in. Yesterday, I talked about grocery stores that have pulled pink slime from the fresh ground beef. Next up what about hot dogs? Can you find pink slime in that iconic American ball game food? So far I have not found any company that uses pink slime. Doesn’t mean they are filler free, probably not, but I can at least say they are pink slime free.

1. Oscar Mayer says on their facebook page – “Oscar Mayer is not using “pink slime” in any products. All of Oscar Mayer beef products, including bologna and hot dogs, are made with high quality, 100% USDA-inspected beef, and contain no byproducts.”

2. Hebrew National – Their hot dogs are kosher, so no by-products are allowed including pink slime

3. Ball Park Franks says on their facebook page – “Thanks for your question. We do not use Lean Finely Textured Beef Trimmings, or what has been characterized in the media as “pink slime,” in our products.”

If you have any information about any other hot dog brands, leave a comment below. Thanks!
