The following kashrus alert is from the FSNet on Sept. 24, 2004 and the Israeli Chief Rabbinate on September 27, 2004.

The Israeli daily Haaretz was cited as reporting Friday that Israel's health ministry has seized 80,000 cans of dog food disguised as gourmet goose liver pate. The story says that the Bulgarian product was originally marked "Chicken for dogs" but was relabelled "Domestic birds' liver pate. Producer: S.E. Grenot, France" and "Pate foie gras. Producer: Lovmit General Toshevo." The ministry, which is investigating whether the questionable meat had time to hit the market, said the importer had also forged a kosher certificate to fulfill the requirements of Jewish dietary law.
