Killer Hot Dogs Sat, 07/30/11 3:35 PM (permalink)
According to the story, over 10,000 children end up in emergency rooms each year due to choking on food, often hot dogs.  And about once a week someone dies.

The demo of smashing the sliced dog was not very convincing to me.

    I don't recall my Mom or Dad ever doing either of those when I was a kid.
     
    I had a friend who's fridge must not have closed all the way, the dog pushed it open the rest of the way and tried to inhale a whole thing of meat.. think of one of those Italian meat sized things hanging in the store.. they heard a noise, ran and found the dog choking.

      It makes me wonder how the hell I survived the 1950's...it must have been pure luck...

        People have way too little to worry about in their lives if redesigning the hotdog to make it safer is a major concern for them.
