Sent via email:
On June 13, 2012, The American Jewish World’s editor, Mordecai Specktor, published an article on its website entitled, “Class action lawsuit argues that Hebrew National hot dogs are not completely kosher”. Mr. Specktor cites numerous sources of information and practices regarding certain allegations made against AER Services, Inc.
Neither Mr. Specktor nor any representative of the American Jewish World contacted, questioned, examined or otherwise consulted with AER Services, Inc. in order to ascertain the Company’s opinion, position, or otherwise verify and/or validate the false accusations and allegations that were made against AER in the article.
As a result of the regrettable and defamatory misconduct of Mr. Specktor and The American Jewish World, AER Services, Inc. intends to file on or before June 20, 2012, the attached Complaint to obtain relief from Mr. Specktor’s improper and unlawful conduct based on the contents of his defamatory article.
Please know that AER Services, Inc. is always available to answer specific questions about any part of the kosher meat processing and inspection services as supervised by the Triangle K Supervision and Certification Organization and can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
AER Services, Inc. remains committed and prepared to answer and respond to each and every allegation and looks forward to proving its innocence against any and all unfounded accusations.…
