ALERT: Fake kosher symbols in India and China
We are warning those who keep kosher to beware of fraudulent symbols purporting to signify kosher certification, particularly in India.
These ‘bogus’ kosher symbols are some of the ones offered by companies, many in Asia particularly India that sell ‘certification’ services. (No recognized rabbinical certification is behind these certifications),” per the website. “One should never rely on a symbol, but verify that it is a reliable agency.
Global Kosher strongly recommends that you always ensure your own kosher standards are met. Don’t hesitate to call the company’s customer service and ask for a valid kosher certificate.
