Ontario court fines Creation Foods Co. for kosher food violation

July 7, 2017 from the FoodSafetyNews:

"n the first provincial court case prosecuted in Canada for misrepresentation of a kosher food product, Creation Foods Co. of Woodbridge, has been fined $25,000."
"The corporate entity recently pleaded guilty to two counts of contravening Section 31(1) of the Food and Drugs Act in the Ontario Court of Justice in Newmarket."
"The charges resulted from an investigation by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). Investigators determined that the company sold a non-kosher food product to two Jewish youth camps, by means of a forged kosher certificate. Cheese sold to both camps did not meet kosher requirements. CFIA said it was the first case in Canada brought before a provincial court related to the misrepresentation of a kosher food product."
"Section B.01.049 of Canada’s Food and Drug Regulations states that no one shall use, in labelling, packaging, advertising or selling, a food that does not meet the requirements of the Jewish religious laws concerning food applicable to it, the word “kosher” or any letters of the Hebrew alphabet or any other word, expression, depiction, sign, symbol, mark, device or other representation that indicates or that is likely to create an impression that the food is kosher."
