Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following Israeli kashrus alert is from the Israeli Chief Rabbinate on December 20, 2011.

#4: Many (Israeli) olive oils with unauthorized hechshers. The national Rabbanut hechsher should be accepted on olive oil only if accompanied by a hologram. (See picture). "Tevel" olive oil claims "badatz beit yosef"; "maayan hashemen" oil claims "chug chasam sofer bnai brak"; "katit me'ulah, Galilee press", by "badatz yore deah" -- all of these are bogus.

The following kashrus alert is from the Israeli Chief Rabbinate and translated by Jerusalem Kosher News on November 16, 2010.

The Israeli Chief Rabbinate has posted a listing of olive oils bearing fraudulent certification in time for Chanukah. The products may include orla or tevel (untithed) oil or ood colorings, flavorings, emulsifiers as well as other oils. A complete list of oils with pictures can be found here.
