Stickers advocating for the BDS movement against Israel were found on Sodastream boxes at several department stores in one of the biggest malls in Winnipeg, Canada, the Coordination Forum for Countering Anti-Semitism reported Friday.

The stickers were found on products at the Hudson's Bay and Sears stores in the Polo Park shopping center by a couple which took photographs of them and sent the pictures to B'nai Brith. Adriana Glikman, B’nai Brith’s Winnipeg Programming Coordinator, informed the managers of both stores of the stickers. She said that both managers were “shocked and disturbed” to find out about the defacement of the products in their stores.

The message on the stickers told consumers not to purchase the Sodastream product because it was made in Israel, which the stickers accused on violating international law, the Fourth Geneva Convention, and human rights.
