US Dept. of Agriculture Probing LA Glatt Kosher Scandal

The Doheny Glatt Kosher meat market controversy has reached the federal level, where the Dept. of Agriculture announced it is investigating accusations against Doheny owner Michael Engelmen that he sold meat that was not properly certified as kosher.

Rabbinical councils usually take measures in similar cases, and legal action against improper kosher meat certification is rare.

The controversy hit the headlines last week when a private investigator handed over to the Dept. of Agriculture videos and other material incriminating Engelman.

The investigator, Eric Agaki, said he launched his own probe several months ago after rabbis approached him with the claim that the prices for Doheny Glatt meat was “way too cheap.” Agaki then discovered that workers for Doheny allegedly put improperly certified meat in empty Glatt kosher boxes.

    Israel has this type of scandal ongoing on a massive scale. Non-kosher meat passes from truck to truck en route, drivers change, shipment certificates designating destinations are faked….. http://www.jewishjournal.com/demographic_duo/item/israels_national_doheny_glatt_kosher_scandal

    Another Kosher scandal on the tossing out of tons of Yom Kippur chickens used for Kaparot in LA this October…. http://www.jewishjournal.com/demographic_duo/item/chicken_tzedakah_makes_a_racket

    The whole kosher meat industry is so corrupt! My husband is an honest, hard working shochet, and he can't find a job anywhere. Who wants to hire a guy who's paying attention to what goes on, and cares about kashrus? Oh no, can't have that! (PS: Don't eat anything from Agri-star!)
