Only Koshered/Treibered Meat Permitted for Sale

chief-rabbinate-of-israel1In a move that is painfully overdue, the Chief Rabbinate of Israel has released a ruling bringing to an end of the sale of meats that were slaughtered in accordance to halacha, but not treibered (de-veined) or perhaps not soaked, salted and soaked. In either case, such meat may not be eaten ‘as is’.

In too many cases, persons unfamiliar with this reality did not understand labeling or even look to understand and G-d forbid cooked and ingested forbidden meats. Alternatively, some people who understand the status are ignorant to the proper halachic procedures to render the meat edible.

The new regulation demands compliance by 1 Tishrei 5771 (Rosh Hashanah)

    Just so I make sure not to be mistaken…..if one eats only mehadrin hechshers for meat – are you safe from this issue?

    what hechshers are a problem?

    Will we ban milchigs because people might eat them with meat?
    And if it is not possible to buy “unkoshered” meat, how will
    anyone teach their kids to “kosher”?
    If items are labeled as not “koshered” then that is sufficient.

    If the Rabbanut wants to stop a “michshol”, how about banning the sale of wine and grape juice that say in tiny letters on the back “kedushat sheviit”!!!

    This is Outragous! Non salted meat is completely mutar if prepared over an open flame. An alternative to this might be to require a warning label and educational posters to be hung in establishments who choose to sell meat that is fresh and no salted.
