Lawsuit Demands Warning Label on Hotdogs

The Cancer Project has filed suit against five hot dog makers to require them to put cancer-risk warning labels on hot dog packages. The labels would read “Warning: Consuming hot dogs and other processed meats increases the risk of cancer.” The suit, filed on behalf of three New Jersey residents, is a class action consumer fraud action, saying that Nathan’s Famous, Kraft Foods/Oscar Mayer, Sara Lee, Con Agra Foods, and Marathon Enterprises knew that eating processed meats increased cancer risk but didn’t warn consumers.
