Hebrew National lawsuit, oy vey, was reported by American Jewish World. The case is Wallace et al v. ConAgra Foods Inc, U.S. District Court, District of Minnesota, No. 12-01354
The lawsuit alleges that [A] meat processing services provided to ConAgra by AER, fell short of the standards necessary to label Hebrew National products as kosher.
[B] ConAgra misled consumers and was able to charge premium prices. Oy vey.
Plaintiffs are seeking unspecified damages and an injunction against further mislabeling. The lawsuit seeks class-action status for US purchasers of Hebrew National products over the last 4 years, and alleges negligence and violation of state consumer fraud laws.
ConAgra denies any wrong-doing and stands behind the quality of its Hebrew National hot dogs and their kosher status.
ConAgra marks Hebrew National packages with a Triangle K symbol and represents that the contents are kosher as defined by the most stringent Jews who follow Orthodox Jewish law.
But something not kosher is going on here. Too much of what goes on in the world isn’t kosher. Class action lawsuit = millions for attorneys and a $1.00 off coupon for plaintiffs. Oy!
If we really knew what was in the meats and snacks that we purchase at the supermarket and order at fast-food restaurants, we probably would not want to buy it, let alone eat it.
In other news: Costco sales of Kosher Hot Dogs go limp. Oy, indeed. And the oy’s have it.
NYC big soda ban proposed by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the Health Dept. wants to decide what and how much New Yorkers drink.
If Bloomberg has his way, sugary drinks at restaurants, street carts and theaters will be outlawed. The sale of any sweetened drink larger than 16 fluid ounces would be prohibited at deli’s, fast-food chains and sports arenas.
Beverages sold in grocery or convenience stores would be exempt and the measure would not apply to alcohol, diet sodas, fruit juices and milkshakes.
Diet sodas and drinks usually contain aspartame, a substance far more dangerous than sugar and even high fructose corn syrup.
Studies prove aspartame in diet sodas cause severe neurologic, gastrointestinal and psychological problems.
But you don’t see Bloomberg ordering his Health Department to ban aspartame’s use, now do you?
Obamacare unconstitutional healthcare monstrosity. The law says that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan must recuse herself rather than shove the unconstitutional takeover of healthcare upon the masses.
The perfectly natural performance of function constitutes health. There is a Principle of Life in the universe, and it is the One Living Substance from which all things are made.
A human being is a form of this Living Substance and has within him a Principle of Health. The Power that Heals is in the patient himself.
If a person has faith in the efficacy of a medicine and is able to apply that faith to himself, that medicine will certainly cause him to be cured. Faith, personally applied, cures.
“ Kagan put out the ridiculous statement saying they could order anything and have socialism, go read it … but forget that because we’ve got a White House that says they can launch wars without Congressional approval, now. We’ve got a White House now that says they can arrest us and kill us.” – Alex Jones
The Principle of Health is largely directed by a persons conscious thought, affecting his subconscious mind. If a person will think only thoughts of perfect health, he can cause within himself the functioning of perfect health
So we see that if a person thinks in a certain healthy way, and eats, drinks, breathes, and sleeps in a corresponding way, he will be well.
Gallagher’s heart attack may have been preventable if Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn and Dr. Dean Ornish are correct about a plant-based, no meat and no dairy diet.
Perhaps instead of smashing watermelons, the comedic genius should be eating the melons instead and smashing the artery clogging food.
Best of success to comedian and philosopher Gallagher.
Former President Bill Clinton started Dr. Esselstyn’s diet for his heart problem. Clinton wound up losing 24 lbs, gained lots of energy and changed his life positively.
“ By eating these whole foods and getting away from processed foods, getting away from the dairy … it’s so incredible how powerful the body can be … the major behavior that has to change is interestingly enough, our food. That is the key card, it trumps everything.” – Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn M.D.
