I didn't realize that there were hot dogs out there with gluten and dairy in them at all.  Learn something new on Lunch every day.  Great list, Alison!  Nom nom nom :)

MANY hot dogs and sausages contain dairy. Not as many contain gluten, but still need to watch out. Plus, most ingredients on not-natural brands are disgusting, so it pays to read the label anyway!!!
