July is National Hot Dog Month

Designated by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in 1957, July is officially National Hot Dog Month, and today the celebration is as strong as ever. The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) is encouraging all Americans to join in celebrating this national icon by firing up the grill and enjoying one of America’s most beloved foods.
The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council is a project of the American Meat Institute and is funded by contributions from hot dog and sausage manufacturers and those who supply them with equipment, ingredients and services.
Established in 1994, the Council conducts scientific research to benefit hot dog and sausage manufacturers. The Council also serves as an information resource to consumers and media on questions related to quality, safety, nutrition and preparation of hot dogs and sausages.
