Glattal Stop

Jewdar has had misgivings about Agriprocessors since reading Postville a few years back, and the periodic hashgacha horror stories haven’t helped heal the the hurt. On our better days, we’ve thought of boycotting them, and we’re definitely not big fans of their products (their mixed beef/chicken salami is the worst sausage we have ever eaten), but alas, at our local butcher, their hot dogs are often the only ones on display, and no matter how willing the spirit, our fleysh is often as weak as theirs. Now that they have been the target of the largest immigration raid in American history and all manner of malfeasance is leaking out, there is a movement in the Orthodox world to bitchslap Agriprocessors into the world of decency. We applaud their efforts, and encourage everyone to sign the petition, since if they are successful in their efforts to get the bad boys of beef to clean up their act then it really lets us off the hook in the holier than thou department.

What do you think?

    “their hot dogs are often the only ones on display,”

    Might I suggest Hebrew National, Jewdar? They are available at most general supermarkets.
