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.
