ConAgra Foods Makes Statement in Response to Hebrew National Lawsuit18:18 EDT Tuesday, June 19, 2012 OMAHA, Neb. (Business Wire) -- ConAgra Foods, Inc. (NYSE: CAG) released the following statement on Tuesday, in response to a class action lawsuit that calls into question the kosher status of its Hebrew National products. Hebrew National products are kosher, and this lawsuit is without merit. Hebrew National's kosher status is certified by a well-recognized and authorized third-party. There is close rabbinical supervision of the food preparation process and packaging equipment. For more than 100 years, Hebrew National has followed strict dietary law, using only specific cuts of beef that meet the highest standards for quality, cleanliness, and safety with no by-products, artificial flavors, or artificial colors.
