Hebrew National defends quality of kosher hot dogs amid lawsuit

June 20, 2012

(abclocal.go.com)MINNESOTA (WABC) — The makers of Hebrew National Kosher hot dogs are defending their product against a lawsuit that questions the company’s kosher standards.
The suit accuses ConAgra Foods of misleading consumers so it can charge a premium price.
Eleven individual consumers filed their complaint in May in Minnesota state court, claiming the meat processing for Hebrew National hot dogs falls short of the standards necessary to label them as kosher.
The lawsuit is seeking class action status.
ConAgra, which marks Hebrew National packages with a “Triangle K” symbol to represents that the contents are kosher “as defined by the most stringent Jews who follow Orthodox Jewish law,” denies the charges.
ConAgra uses the slogan, “We answer to a higher authority,” to promote Hebrew National products.
