Hot Dog Warning Labels

Warning: The salt, fat and nitrate laden mechanically separated meat, intestines, snouts, ears, and blended organs is a potential choking hazard if not thoroughly chewed. Take small bites and chew thoroughly. But hey, enjoy that ballgame!
Pediatricians Call For Choke-Proof Hot Dog - USA Today

Have you heard about this? Pediatricians want warning labels on hot dogs. How about warning labels for all food? All food presents a choking hazard if you take to large a bite and/or don't chew thoroughly before swallowing.

The American Academy of Pediatrics "would like to see foods such as hot dogs "redesigned" so their size, shape and texture make them less likely to lodge in a youngster's throat."

I say Oscar Mayer, Ballpark, Nathan's, Hebrew National, Best's Kosher, Bar S, Vienna, Armour needs to get creative. Hey, if someone found a way to freeze dry ice cream, why can't they make hot dogs safe? Hot dog pellets? Ick! No. Flat hot dogs...oh wait...they call that bologna.
