Summary:

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) received 64 complaints of foreign objects in hot dogs from 2007-09, including glass, a rubber glove, and over an inch of a winged insect resembling a dragonfly. Nor was the USDA itself immune, as a Food Safety Inspection Service employee found a foreign object in a hot dog at an office cookout in 2008.
