A health group wants the Yale Bologna Festival to change its name

A national nonprofit health advocacy group is targeting a longtime popular festival in Michigan’s lower thumb area and its signature food: bologna.

The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PRCM) made up of 17,000 doctors, has asked the organizers of the annual Yale Bologna Festival to change its name to the “Yale Phony Bologna Festival.”

During the festival, the PRCM plans to sponsor a mobile billboard, according to a news release, warning festival-goers and residents with a message that “Bologna is cancer-causing baloney.”
