Bogus “HaMelech Virgin Olive Oil”

14 Menachem Av 5772 August 2, 2012

The following is taken from the Chief Rabbinate of Israel Update 025/2012.

Inspectors of the Chief Rabbinate Kashrus Enforcement Division working with health inspectors closed down an operation in the Lower Galil run by the Suleiman brothers, who were bottling ‘olive oil’ that in essence was a mixture of other oils. In addition, the bogus oil had a bogus hechsher and claims that it enjoyed a hashgacha from the Rabbanut are also bogus. This olive oil was sold under the “HaMelech Virgin Olive Oil” label.
