ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A federal judge in Minnesota has thrown out a lawsuit that claimed Hebrew National's hot dogs and other meat products aren't entirely kosher.
U.S. District Judge Donovan Frank ruled Thursday that whether those products are indeed ``100 percent kosher'' is a religious question that is outside the court's review.
A group of 11 people had sued ConAgra Foods Incorporated, maker of Hebrew National.
The suit claimed that the Omaha, Nebraska-based company charges premium prices for Hebrew National meats that aren't really 100 percent kosher.
ConAgra released a statement saying it was pleased by the ruling and has ``always stood by'' its kosher status.
The plaintiffs' attorneys did not immediately respond to requests for comment Thursday evening.
Shares of ConAgra fell 3 cents to close at $32.69 Thursday.
