CONSUMER RE-
PORTS SAYS . . "In
CU's judgement, manufac-
turers should make some
changes in bologna. For one
thing, the sodium nitrite
must go. So should some of
the fat and all of-the added
water. And the astonish-
ingly high levels of added
salt should be severely cut
back. As things stand now,
we don't think much of the
product. And we judge that
it's especially unwise to al-
low bologna (or any other
processed meat) to become a
steady part of a youngster's
lunch diet. Why feed a child
a bologna sandwich or a
frankfurter — with all that
nitrite, salt, and saturated
fat — when a peanut-butter
sandwich or a hamburger,
among other alternatives,
would be so much better?"
