Israeli police and Ramle municipality’s veterinarian unit employees seized more than 700 kg of unsuitable, seemingly non-kosher meat from a nearby restaurant with a mehadrin kashrus.
According to a police investigation released on Monday, the meat was reportedly smuggled into Israel from the Palestinian Authority and stored improperly in a room with no refrigeration and a temporary air conditioner.
According to a police statement, “targeted enforcement at several local enterprises was done, including verifying business permits and sanitation, by officers from the Ramle station as well as supervisors from local authorities and representatives of the veterinary service.
The authorities seized roughly 760 kg of unfit-for-consumption mit during the enforcement operation.
The restaurant was penalized for its unhygienic behavior, and the meat was removed and destroyed.
