"The products are displayed as approved by Rabbi Ralbag and the Israeli Chief Rabbinate," wrote Thursday Rabbi Yaakov Sabag, head of Kashrut Department at the Rabbinate. "But when we checked the facts with Ralbag," he added, "We learned that he didn't approve the products. It's a serious forgery."
Leimen-Shclissel, which imports Tic-Tac to Israel, said in response: "In the coming days we are about to receive a kosher certificate from an American kashrut organization, approved by the Rabbinate."
Importers of the ice-cream snacks, Moshe Sidas and Sons LTD, claimed that they are doing their best in order to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
