  • I ate them when preggers with both kids. Hot Dogs won't hurt your baby

  • it's fine.....they say that becasue of the nitrates and the possibility of being undercooked, just like the deli meat warning. I ate both during both my pregnancies and my kids are alive and well.

  • Go get you some good, natural hot dogs at the health food store. They are way better for you and taste amazing!

  • The concern over hot dogs or deli meat is listeria contamination. A form of food poisioning. Which is easily taken care of if the meat is heated to at least 160 degrees. Just dont eat uncooked hot dogs & you'll be ok.
