Doheny Glatt Kosher Meat Market Sued Again

Doheny Glatt Kosher Meat Market on Pico Boulevard is now facing a second lawsuit.

It was filed filed Friday by Parham Zar in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The suit alleges that the long-time supplier of Kosher food is falsely marketing its meats as being kosher, claiming fraud, breach of contract, battery and both intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress

Video recorded by private investigators that aired on KTLA shows the meat being transported without the rabbinically required supervision of a mashgiach.

Beverly Hills resident Joshua Fard filed a similar lawsuit last Tuesday.

He’s hoping others will join him in a class-action against the shop and owner Michael Engleman.

The Fard lawsuit alleges that Engelman and his store falsely advertised their products as Glatt Kosher so as to demand higher prices.

Fard also states that thousands of the market’s patrons have been misled and suffered emotional distress after finding out that the products were not authentic.

The market is also being investigated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The Los Angeles Times notes that this is not the first time that a secular agency has stepped in to enforce what is ultimately a matter of religious law.

The Rabbinical Council of California had also pulled Engleman’s kosher certification, and were thinking of taking legal action.

Engelman has consistently refused to comment to the media on the matter.

Pico-Robertson Butcher Loses Kosher Status After Alleged Meat Scandal

March 29, 2013 at 12:38 pm
losangeles.cbslocal.com -

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A Southland rabbinical group Friday was expected to begin a review of its kosher certification guidelines after a butcher shop was caught allegedly selling and repackaging non-kosher meat.

The Rabbinical Council of California (RCC) revoked the kosher certification for Doheny Glatt Kosher Meats on Mar. 24, according to The Jewish Journal. The move came less than 36 hours before the Passover holiday.

Employees of Doheny Glatt were reportedly caught on video taking boxes of kosher meats into the store located at 9213 West Pico Blvd. without being supervised by the proper officials.

Eric Agaki, a Los Angeles-based private investigator, captured footage taken over the course of a six-month period from a Doheny Glatt warehouse on Pico Boulevard and a second location in the San Fernando Valley and showed it to the RCC, according to the Journal.

Doheny Glatt has since been removed from the RCC’s official list of kosher butchers.

The RCC is expected to release a full statement on the findings later this afternoon.
