Spoiled meat was smuggled into Israel and sold to some of Israel's most renowned restaurants and meat stores.


April 5, 2016 - Globes.co.il:
"The Ministry of Agriculture enforcement and investigation unit today found 700 kilograms of meat in the Tel Aviv Tikva market smuggled into Israel from Judea and Samaria. The unit also intercepted enormous quantities of smuggled meat at the Dragot checkpoint near the Dead Sea."
Today's report follows one from yesterday, according to which enforcement and investigation unit inspectors exposed a ring smuggling meat into Israel from the Palestinian Authority (PA). The smuggled meat, which was sold to leading restaurants and various meat shops, bore forged expiration dates, slaughter dates, and kashrut certificates."
"The Ministry of Agriculture bans the import of animal products from the PA to Israel because of improper storage conditions, and in order to prevent the entry of spoiled meat into the country. The smuggled goods reached a warehouse in the Atarot industrial zone, where they were repackaged and kashrut certificates, expiration dates, and veterinary authorization documents were forged. The meat, which was unfit for human consumption, was distributed to restaurants and various meat shops. Concealment of transactions and income in Israel is also suspected."
