Name given to sauerkraut propagated by the Committee on Public Information during World War I to help bolster American patriotism and a dislike for all things German. Along with banning German from being taught in schools, creating pressure on people of German descent to change their names, and changing German street names, the CPI changed the names of some German foods.
