Kraft Foods, Sara Lee Settle Dueling Hot Dog Suits

Transcript

STEVE INSKEEP, host:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with an update on a hot dog war.

Kraft Foods and Sara Lee settled dueling lawsuits. Kraft claims its Oscar Mayer hot dogs defeated Sara Lee's Ball Park Franks. Sara Lee claimed to be America's best franks. And each company sued the other for exaggeration. Now the companies have settled out of court. Each will drop its claim that the other's hot dog wasn't so great. This way they avoid the danger of the court ruling that they were both right.
