Print Friendly, PDF & Email

The Badatz Eida Chareidit has announced exactly which places are under its kashrus supervision in the Kever Rashbi area and other northern cities ahead of Lag B’Omer. The badatz warns that others selling food and assuring customers that “we are badatz” are not under the hashgacha and therefore, the badatz assume no responsibility for the product sold.

  1. I have a beef with the Badaatz.
    They sold under their haechsher a kosher Lepesach product containing kitniyos.
    It was only when i came home that i saw in letters so small that i literally needed a magnifying glass, “but not for Pesach”.
    Now whenever i see something with the Badaatz i always second guess- Am i missing omething.

  2. #1, Make up your mind. You admit yourself that the Badatz hechsher was not for Pesach; so why do you call it “kosher lepesach”? How big did you expect the “not for Pesach” notice to be? What do you expect them to do? It’s not their responsibility to tell you that the hechsher is not for Pesach, it’s your responsibility to check that it is. If a hechsher doesn’t positively state that it is for Pesach, then it isn’t; and the fact that the Badatz puts a small notice to that effect means that they’re going beyond what they have to. So it’s a chutzpah for you to use this as the basis for a complaint!

    And if you’re someone who relies only on Badatz hechsherim, how is it possible for you to be unaware that as a matter of policy they never give any hechsherim for Pesach, except for items that people can’t live without? You will never see a Badatz hechsher for Pesach on snack food, no matter how obviously non-chometz it is, so why did you even consider that the hechsher on your item might have been for Pesach?
