"Hearts, for instance, are perfectly healthy, perfectly wholesome, but it's not something we commonly consume as a culture so it's not something (meatpackers) commonly add," Riley said. "If they are, it would be displayed clearly and prominently on the label."

A frank talk about hot dogs

The connotation, of course, was that the hot dogs were made from dogs and at least one silent film from the early 20th century showed dogs going into a box and hot dogs coming out, reinforcing the notion in the public's mind, Riley said.
