It's (not) a Jewish thing

I really like Hebrew National hotdogs. I just do. Always have. Probably always will. My fondness of them comes from — I’m sure — my childhood, but the fact that I now understand that their being Kosher means that they are made in extraordinarily sanitary environments doesn’t hurt either. Of course, the FDA is more than reputable, but the more I read articles on counterfeit medicines, the more concerned I become. Can’t technology help us discover what’s real and what’s not? And further, what would happen if HIT products are copies? What would the outcome be if that MRI, EKG, X-ray is not the real deal? Can’t we harness HIT to make certain that what we are relying on is the real deal and not something less than kosher?
