THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following information is from the JewishPress.com and vosizneias.comon May 20, 2013.

Jerusalem District Court on Monday will hear arguments over the validity of a consumer class action suit against Tnuva Central Cooperative for the Marketing of Agricultural Produce in Israel Ltd., based on the claim that Tnuva misled consumers regarding the humane treatment of animals in its Beit She’an beef slaughterhouse and meat-packing plant, where its Adom Adom (“very red”) top quality brand is produced. A December 6, 2012 expose on Israeli TV consumer advocacy program "Colbotech" showed shocking details of the way animals are being treated in the Beit She’an slaughterhouse. A group of consumers, headed by a Haredi woman named Ruth Kolian, is looking to sue Tnuva for consumer anguish. "The issue at hand is whether the fact that the animals had undergone inhumane treatment in itself justifies a claim for monetary compensation for the plaintiffs, and whether it is sufficiently broad to justify a class action suit. According to Haaretz, Israeli food giant Tnuva Food Industries admitted to causing great "suffering" to animals, calling it an unavoidable part of a process that is, by nature, brutal.
The court's ruling will be about the validity of the class action suit and not the suit itself.

ed. note: OIE specifically recognizes kosher and halal as humane.
