Rishon L’Tzion HaGaon HaRav Yitzchak Yosef Shlita during his weekly shiur on Motzei Shabbos in the Yazdim Shul in Jerusalem spoke about the Shechita of meat under the Hechsher of the Badatz Eida Chareidis.
According to the Rishon L’Tzion, the standard of the meat under the hashgacha of the Badatz Eida Chareidis is no longer on the level it used to be, and one should use another hechsher than that one, which regarding meat, is among the lowest level there is for Sephardim.
“Is the Eida Chareidis from Shomayim? Quite the contrary. The meat of others is preferable than that of the Eida and I say this with total responsibility”, stated Rav Yosef.
The rav added, “There are many hechsherim Baruch Hashem, Ben Porat Yosef. The meat of the hechsher is the lowest there is.”
