I have heard that hotdogs contain earthworms and that it is listed on the ingrediants as "erthobate". Also, I was told that the only company that doesn't use earthworms is Kunzler. I checked out the ingrediants on the packages and Kunzler was the only one w/o erthobate in the ingredents. Any truth to this??

In my estimation, quite a bit of processed meat has bugs and other animal things in it (even animal waste). It would be almost impossible to keep the processing equipment 100% clean of all extra animal parts. But with hot dogs, does it really matter?

I've heard hotdogs r made of animal parts like brains, livers, hearts, and etc. Mostly pig and cow parts and maybe other animals aswell. One cant resist taking a bite though. Some people might think it taste weird but thats what mustard and chilli r for. Although it does give it a certain taste.
I always heard hotdogs were made from lips and assholes. Regardless of their constitution, those that don't like them are just looking for excuses not to eat them. I like a good chili-dog myself with mustard and ketchup. I don't care if it is made out of earthworms or porcine pancreas, I still like them.

Upton Sinclair's 1906 novel The Jungle, essentially an indictment of the meat-packing industry and its excesses being inflicted upon those so employed, made much note of the zeal with which meat packers, under the banner of "efficency," would resort to all manner of expedients and shortcuts in the interest of what nowadays would be called "adding value."
Not to mention alluding to the Embalmed Beef Scandal of 1898-99, wherein it was learned that our boys at the front in the Spanish-American War were served rotten (even decayed) meat from poor-quality tins, and processed for the most part from diseased or lame cattle, causing a number of deaths from food poisoning (which, it may be worth knowing, were actually more than the number of those as died from enemy fire in that conflict)....

Similar things have been said about Spam (I mean the lunch meat, as per Hormel out of Austin, MN) down the years, as a matter of fact.
(In matter of fact, Spam was conceived of as a cheap and cheerful way to use pork shoulders that had otherwise been considered waste product, blended with Hormel ham, water and spices. And has been since its 1937 debut.
(The name, BTW, was chosen in an employee contest and is said to be a contracted form of "spiced ham.")
