The headlines scream  “Industry Slams Report of Human DNA in Hotdogs” Most people don’t bother to read the story and just make up all kinds of things in their head and then repeat them.

A report by Clear Labs claims human DNA has been found in two percent of hot dogs. The California-based company report is described as an “online food guide for consumers.”

Yet, of all the samples tested, only one meat hot dog showed any evidence of human DNA and that was at the cellular level.” The Hot Dog and Sausage Council criticized the company for providing what limited information on its methodology.

In case you missed that line let me repeat it

Only one meat hot dog showed any evidence of human DNA and that was at the cellular level.
