TOLEDO, OHIO (AP) - An Ohio hot dog eatery made famous on the TV series “M.A.S.H” is getting a new owner.

A judge has signed off on a deal transferring ownership of Tony Packo’s Inc. to a private restaurant group in Toledo.

The decision was announced Monday. It comes days after the founder’s grandson was charged with stealing from the family business, where he’s poised to play a major role in the new ownership.

An attorney for the new owner says the accusations won’t affect its plan.

One of the restaurant chain’s owners opposed the sale after accusing family members of blocking him from financial records after he questioned them about spending.

Actor Jamie Farr made Packo’s famous in the 1970s when he portrayed a homesick U.S. soldier in the Korean War who longed for its hot dogs.
