Human DNA Found in Hot Dogs!

(Before It's News)

A private food testing lab called Clear Food is ramping up with a project it says will publicly post scores for foods based on whether the food composition matches the label. Sadly, this lab wants to be a “friend” of the food industry and won’t be testing for GMOs, pesticides or anything not listed on the label. They’re not even releasing the brand names of the hot dogs contaminated with human DNA! (Natural News)

In its first big announcement, the lab tested hundreds of hot dogs and veggie dogs and found some very disturbing things. For starters, it found human DNA in hot dogs. “Two percent of all samples were found to have traces of human DNA in them. Veggie dogs were the worst off, accounting for 67 percent of the hygiene issues and two-thirds of the human DNA found,” 

 Apparently, veggie dogs aren’t 100% vegetarian because they also contain some human parts. According to the Clear Food report, 10% of vegetarian hot dogs contained meat. Sadly, Clear Food refuses to name which brands were contaminated!

The problem with Clear Food

As the lab director of the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, I’m always excited when I see more private labs cropping up and getting into the business of testing food. But Clear Labs seems to have already surrendered to the food industry and won’t be testing for GMOs. Clear Food “does not want to alienate industry,” reports Food Quality News. “…we don’t want to alienate industry,” said Mahni Ghorashi, co-founder of Clear Labs. “We are not a consumer watchdog organization.”

So they’re not even naming which brands were contaminated. Wow… they censor their own science to protect the worst offenders! How can they call themselves “Clear” when they won’t even tell consumers which brands were contaminated? That’s too bad, because it means this company is going to be giving high scores to all sorts of toxic, genetically modified foods made with hydrogenated oils, cancer-causing sodium nitrite and HFCS.

Sadly, this means a high “Clear Food” score will mislead consumers into thinking a food item is healthy, nutritious or even non-GMO when it’s actually made from toxic ingredients that cause cancer, obesity and diabetes. The entire Clear Food system only rates whether food composition matches the food label. That’s it. And since GMOs aren’t labeled, they won’t even be testing for GMOs.

Too bad. They could have been empowering consumers, but now they’re likely to end up as just another industry lapdog that grants misleading high scores to processed food loaded with GMOs. Learn more:

    They don’t mean they contain GMO human meat, but eg traces of human excrement, urine, phlegm and hair. It’s a widespread hygiene problem in America, Americans spitting in it, not washing their hands after going to the toilet, etc.

    I’m never going to buy another American food product ever again. Filthy.

  • With the amount of Hot Dogs that are produced in America on a yearly basis, I’m amazed that no one has choked to death on a complete finger bone, or a human nose. Be grateful that a bit of DNA is all you have to deal with.
    Let’s hear it for Safe Work Initiatives.
