In brief: Who ate the hot dog?
If the uncooked hot dog was eaten by the mother during pregnancy, my guess would be listeria monocytogenes.
Listeria monocytogenes typically infects people with compromised immune systems, the very aged and the very young included. See the website of the centers for disease control for more about this foodborne illness and how to prevent it (http://www.Cdc.Gov/listeria/).
