Kayem Foods Inc., Chelsea, Mass., is entering into a multi-year sponsorship and licensing agreement with Major League Baseball's Tampa Bay Rays to manufacture new varieties of beef hot dogs and distribute the items at Rays games.

Products include the Beef Hot Dog, Footlong Beef Hot Dog, Beef Kids Dog and Italian Sausage.

Select items in new packaging also will be merchandised in retail stores throughout Florida this spring.

The hot dogs are devised from a recipe that includes a unique blend of spices for a distinct bolder flavor, the company notes.

The plump and juicy skinless hot dogs also are free of fillers, monosodium glutamate and gluten.
