My actual question is 'How do you react when an Islamic Department or any Islamic organizations decides to change names of few foods that had been existed or known for you for decades?'
Here, the situation is:
Recently an Islamic organizations (a government body) of a country decides to change the name of food because it is related to animal that Haram for the Muslim. The food that I'm talking about is "Hotdog" = a sausage which definitely not made from dog meat, of course. Due to its common name, there is a restaurant that name their brand as 'Bagel Dog' (if not mistaken but there is dog name for the product). The body claimed that 'dog' sounds obscure, vague and it sounds Haram.

However, few people argue about it because they had called the food such name for decades. They criticize and condemned the action of the body. (What make it sad is, it cause war of words between the Muslim in that country, while of course the non-Muslim in that country belittle the action).
But I agree so much if they can change term bacon (that makes from Halal meat) which for me its confusing no matter what, because normally when people said bacon, its from swine.
Doesn't mean if I agree or disagree with the act, if its cause uncertainty, then you have to avoid it, as a Muslim. As an example, if you feel hesitate about the source of the food or the way it is prepared, you have to avoid to eat the food, unless in emergency situation (correct me if wrong).
