(AP) - THE LAWSUIT: A lawsuit seeking class action status claims that Hebrew National products, made by ConAgra Foods Inc., are not entirely kosher.

THE CLAIMS: The lawsuit alleges that employees at a third-party certifier witnessed non-kosher processing methods. For example, it says animals used to make Hebrew National products sometimes did not meet standards that animals used for kosher meat be clean and healthy.

THE RESPONSE: ConAgra is standing by its products and says the suit is without merit.
