Many foods can be choking hazards, but hot dogs cause the most choking deaths among children. Parents and caregivers often believe it is safe to cut a hot dog into thin, round slices. However, if swallowed whole, these hot dog slices can cause choking. Hot dogs should be quartered lengthwise and then sliced into small pieces. Other round foods, such as whole grapes, should be cut into small, non-round pieces.
