WASHINGTON – July is National Hot Dog Month and the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council is promoting the purchase and consumption of the iconic food.

In 1957, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce officially designated July as National Hot Dog Month and the celebration this year is expected to be as strong as ever, according to the council.

“On Independence Day, Americans will enjoy 150 million hot dogs, enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times,” said Janet Riley, N.H.D.S.C. president. “That’s just part of the 20 billion hot dogs that Americans eat in a year. Given the hot dog’s popularity, it is only natural that we celebrate this essential American food, not just on this great American holiday, but the whole month of July.”
