morano-shuk-agrippas-st-store-signs21The branch of this national name located at the corner of Agrippas and Machane Yehuda Streets in the shuk, Jerusalem, has lost its hechsher from Badatz Belz Machzikei Hadas. I was told by the kashrus area supervisor for Belz that the hechsher organization revoked the hechsher because the store, which sells over 50% candies which are not under the supervision of Belz or Beit Yosef, wishes to sell even more kosher problematic items, prompting the decision to yank the Belz certificate.

The Badatz Beit Yosef hechsher remain in place on nuts and dried fruits only for the time being. NO AGENCY assumes responsibilities for all the other items sold in the store, including candies.

See the JKN October 15, 2009 article for additional information into this problematic store.
