Hebrew National Hotdogs Sued For Not Being Kosher
A class action has been filed in a Minnesota federal court against ConAgra Foods, the parent company of Hebrew National, known for its famous kosher hot-dogs. The lawsuit alleges that Hebrew National’s hotdogs are not kosher as claimed, due to suspect procedures at the company’s slaughterhouses.
According to the complaint, Hebrew National’s slaughterhouse employees complained to their supervisor and Triangle K that improper practices were taking place. Trial K is the company that certifies Hebrew National’s hotdogs as kosher. However, “little or nothing” was done to fix Hebrew National’s slaughtering practices. Instead, the complaining employees were terminated or were threatened with being transferred to another facility.
The lawsuit seeks monetary relief for consumers that paid more for Hebrew National hot-dogs than other comparative brands, based on Hebrew National’s representations that their hot-dogs were certified kosher.
