Israel – The Chief Rabbinate is establishing a laboratory in the center of the country to carry out kashrut testing for companies marketing leafy vegetables.
The move follows the discovery of worms and other things that rendered produce marked “mehadrin” (a strict level of kashrut) unkosher.

The companies affected were Yevulei Hanegev and Alei Sharon. Rabbi Yosef Efrati, who certifies the kashrut for Alei Sharon removed his certification on Sunday.
