Jews sue over pork casing on beef hot dog

CHICAGO, Nov. 22 (UPI) — Three Chicago-area Jews are suing a hot dog maker for mislabeling weiners as all beef when they actually were wrapped in pork casings.
The suit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court Monday against Vienna Beef of Chicago, seeking unspecified damages for emotional distress suffered after the plaintiffs read the label of a box beside a street vendor’s cart, the Chicago Tribune reported.
Vienna Beef spokeswoman Susan Stoga said the company stands behind its “all-beef” labeling and said 96 percent of the company’s hot dogs
are either skinless or use a non-pork casing.
If they have a problem with how hotdogs are made, then they should start their own business. That way people would not have to pay extra just to have there food certified safe for Jews.
