A New York Daily News headline writer needs a quick course in kosher dietary laws after an overly cute headline tried to get across the message that moose lasagna is not kosher if pork is used.
As most Jews and many non-Jews know, Jewish law forbids eating milk products and meat products together. Even if the moose meat were slaughtered according to Jewish law, mixing it with a cheese lasagna is as kosher as a ham on cheese sandwich.
The offending non-kosher item was pork, which the Daily News reported was found in batch sample of moose lasagna served up in IKEA stores in Europe.
The Daily News began its headline blurb with “Kosher wanted?” and then followed it with the report of the discovery of pork, which is a forbidden food not only for Jews but also for Muslims, whose European population is more than 45 million.
The newspaper explained that moose meat is common in Sweden home of IKEA, but is not usually used in lasagna.
