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 Inc., maker of Hebrew National. The suit claimed that the Omaha, Neb.-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.
