Shevach Meats Fiasco ll: More Info

I came upon this article in the Jewish Press ( please scroll down for the article). Evidently the owner of Shevach Meats was held in high esteem he even gave a daily daf shiur etc.. I fault not only the owner of Shevach who seriously let greed blind him ( and perhaps is not dealing with a full deck), words certainly can not describe my anger at such a person. The owner of Hatzlocha according to this article had been aware of questions regarding Shevach and did nothing. If this is true he should not be allowed to operate that store. They end the article by saying:
As we go to press, the OU and the Hisachdus Horabbonim, both of which had no part in the Shevach affair, are individually calling emergency meetings to revise procedures so that such a recurrence should never happen again. Rumors abound as to civil law suits as well as civil and criminal investigations, some that may overlap into other areas of the kosher food industry. Regardless, all rumors, insinuations, etc., must be discounted, and ignored, in anticipation of official findings. It will be interesting to see what the dept. of agriculture finds in thier investigation of this matter

This story boggles my mind! If one wants tolive his life as unobservant, it is his choice. But to do something to cause hundreds if not thousands of others to eat non kosher is unfathomable in my book.

Blogmeister, Sorry I lost your email amidst a flood of other emails. I need to get you on my list of links.

I don't even know what too say about such a terrible story except that I will be reading more. The story boggles the mind.
