Nutritious, Safe and Inspected
Hotdogs are a satisfying and delicious food and a great source of protein. A regular hotdog ( a 45 gram serving) contains 150 calories, 13 grams of fat, and 5 grams of protein. However, for consumers seeking to reduce fat and sodium, there are plenty of choices in the marketplace, including low-fat or fat-free dogs that contain as few as 45 calories.
Like all meat and poultry products, hot dogs are inspected carefully by USDA inspectors, who are in meat and poultry plants every day. These inspectors monitor food safety and check to ensure that proper labeling is applied.
