There have been reports in various media (see below) that fraudulent Aaron’s Best labels were used by one of Agristar’s customers on non-kosher meat in the Los Angeles, California area; this is very disturbing and inexcusable. Agristar had no knowledge of this alleged misuse of its labels, and should these allegations prove to be true, Agristar will discontinue any further relationship with this customer. Agristar prides itself in its relentless pursuit of the highest standards of kashrus and will use all means at its disposal to prevent a reoccurrence of this unfortunate and illegal behavior.
The following is an article from KTLA:
As Jews throughout Southern California prepare to celebrate Passover, a huge local distributor of Kosher meats has been stripped of its certification.
Doheny Glatt Kosher Meats is a wholesale supplier of Kosher products to merchants, restaurants, and caterers.
The company also has a retail market at their Pico Boulevard location where they sell directly to customers.
Doheny Glatt is accused of repacking Kosher meat boxes with USDA products that were not Kosher.
The Rabbinical Council of California sent out an email informing people that the meat bought before 3:00 p.m. on Sunday is still considered Kosher.
