Hot dog carts are far too enticing, the smell of the onions frying and hot dogs cooking is enough draw anyone in, even those who aren’t particularly fond of hot dogs. On a busy day shopping or a day out with the family, a quick hot dog can be the ideal snack and perfect way to refuel, giving you energy to carry on.
Hot dog stands have plenty of hot dogs readily available, they cook them quickly and serve their customers with speed, which is one of the reasons they are so perfect for a quick snack, however, because of this they are more prone to causing food poisoning.
When it comes to food poisoning claims, some of the most common we see at Accident Advice Helpline are concerning fast food stands – food poisoning from a hot dog cart being one of them.
