Kashrut Supervisor Protests Tzabar Humus Campaign


Rabbi Moshe Havlin of Kiryat Gat, who supervises kashrut for Saltei Tzabar, protested, Monday, a sales campaign in which people who type the code of the company's products can win a free helping of humus at a number of humus restaurants around the country, most of which are not under supervision for kashrut. Interviewed by Arutz Sheva's Hebrew service, Rabbi Havlin said that the kashrut of Tzabar's products gives the wrong impression that the establishments are also kosher.

The rabbi said he asked the company to remove the non-kosher restaurants from the list or to specify which restaurants are kosher and which are not, and that the voucher for the free helping would not be valid on Shabbat. He said the company agreed but has not done so yet. The company said the vouchers are not good on Shabbat.
