Kosher Fenway Franks?

It may be way off topic, but this may be the most important news you read all day. When the Sox come home, there are going to be Kosher Hot Dogs at Fenway (Hat Tip: Ann in Connecticut).
Red Sox fans who follow strict kosher dietary laws will be able to eat hot dogs at Fenway Park this year.

The Boston Herald reports that an automated vending machine in the concourse under the bleachers will be dispensing the kosher dogs.

Fenway already sells Hebrew National kosher dogs, but those are "kosher-style" and aren't prepared, packaged, shipped and cooked under supervision of a rabbi or kosher-certification agency.

The hot dogs in the "Hot Nosh" vending machine will be.

Shea and Yankee stadiums have kosher concession stands, and the Red Sox often receive requests for kosher food at Fenway.

The team's concessionaire, Aramark, says they'll start with one "Hot Nosh" machine, and may add more, depending on capacity and demand.
That calls for a round of Sweet Caroline:

Shy Guy,

The hot dogs are Triangle K? That would be a pity. I can't go there either.

The article in the Forward simply stated that Hebrew National may be moving to Triangle K supervision.

The "Hot Nosh" vending machines are under the supervison of the Chof-K, according to the home page of the company providing the machines. Their meat products are glatt. Also, the two co-owners are Orthodox Jews. See http://www.koshervendingindustries.com/index.htm

I'm sorry. I misread the article that they would be Hebrew National hotdogs, which are under under Triangle K (see here).

Hot-Nosh - yay!!!!

Take me out to the ballgame!

While the machine may be owned by Orthodox Jews, check with your Rabbi about the reliability of these machine. A kosher meat establishment requires a full-time mashgioch. If there is no supervision when the machines are loaded, how can you guarantee that you, in fact, purchasing a kosher hot dog?
