Consumers sue to
keep hot dogs pure

WASHINGTON (AP) -Four con-
sumer groups have sued to block a
change in federal regulations that would
let hot dogs and similar meats con-
tain finely ground bits of bone without it
being listed on the label.
In announcing the suit yesterday,
Rodney Leonard of the Community
Nutrition Institute said the change
"would cause meat products to be both
misbranded and adulterated, a
violation of the Federal Meat Inspec-
tion Law."
Leonard said the -change in
regulations by the Department of
Agriculture, which would let the bone
be listed as "calcium," would not make

clear to consumers that the meat also
contains added amounts of lead, cad-
mium, flouide and nucleic acid.
'IT'S NOT MEAT," Leonard said of
the hot dogs allowed under the proposed
labeling rule. "It's a different product
In announcing the proposal last mon-
th, Donald Houston of the Agriculture
Department said, "Mechanically
separated meat . . . it's significant
potential source of wholesome food
made possible by new processing
He said it had been ignored because
of "regulatory requirements that are
more restrictive than necessary to
protect consumers."

Money-back medicine
E ASWOOD HOSPITAL of Memphis, Tenn., is offering a unique service
for unsatisfied patients. From now on, the hospital will give patients
refunds if medical service fails to measure up. "By placing our services un-
der a money-back guarantee, we are letting people know they will get the
service they have been promised, or they will get a credit on their account,"
said hospital administrator John Davis. The 243-bed hospital says that all
patients have to do is complain and they can get $15 back if their admission
isn't completed within 45 minuted, $10 back if a nurse fails to respond to a
call within a minute, and $5 if a meal is late or cold. But the plan, however,
does not cover every unavoidable medical drawback, said one hospital
spokesman. "How can we guarantee that the needle is not going to hurt or
that all the tests and procedures are going to be nice and comfortable?"
asked personnel director Travis Keenum. Q
Cadillac cops
T WO CADILLACS seized from an auto parts dealer in Titusville,
Fla., who is serving an 180-year prison sentence will be driven around
town - but with law officers behind the wheel. One will become the official
car of Sheriff Jake Miller. The other will be used by vice squad agents. The
vehicles were confiscated when Clarence Zacke of West Melbourne
originally was arrested on drug charges. Sincesthen, Zacke has been convic-
ted four times in murder-for-hire plots allegedly directed from the county
jail. The sheriff's department could sell the cars, but, "I'd rather have of-
ficers use them than sell them for peanuts," Miller said. The vice squad was
happy to use the second luxury car on the job. "Nobody would suspect a
Cadillac or a Mercedes," one vice agent said. "The criminals know we don't
have that kind of money." As for Miller, "I might as well drive it," he said.
"It's free." But the first thing he'll do before climbing behind the wheel of
the 1979 Caddy is remove a bumper sticker that reads: "Protected by the
Mafia." The sheriff says he'll replace it with one saying, "Love a Cop." .
