Hebrew National hotdogs may not have actually been produced under the stringent Orthodox Jewish laws required to make them kosher.
Eleven consumers filed a complaint in Federal Court last month, contending that parent company ConAgra ignored employee’s concerns that the hot dogs and other meats processed in the facility did not meet kosher standards.
The plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages, and an injunction against further mislabeling.
Apparently, Hebrew National doesn’t really “answer to a higher authority”, after all.
The company is denying the allegations.
