Meat Shortages and CHK Policy Leaves Crown Heights Food Establishments In A Conundrum


Meat Shortages and CHK Policy Leaves Crown Heights Food Establishments In A Conundrum

by CrownHeights.info

It’s a conundrum for the Crown Heights food establishments that doesn’t have a good answer, either stop serving meat or start serving non-Lubavitch Shchita.

With the CHK’s sudden exodus from Agri’s Shor Habor brand of meat, concern of a Pesach meat shortage was well founded. A private run of beef at Solomon’s in Nebraska provided relief for the Crown Heights and Lubavitch consumer who only eat CHK meat, but that was only for beef.

Another shortage, that of cold cuts and poultry was not averted in time, and some Crown Heights food establishments, including restaurants and take-outs, have already run out.

Speaking to CrownHeights.info on condition of anonymity, one food establishment noted that the CHK had warned him of consequences if he used Shor Habor meat under the Lamed-K Hechsher at his establishment, even though it was the only available Lubavitch Shchita meats that fulfilled their needs.

This requirement left certain food establishments in a bind. Either stop selling these meats all together, or start selling non-Lubavitch Shchita meat.

CrownHeights.info has confirmed that non-Lubavitch Shchita meat is being sold by at least one CHK establishment that had previously sold only Lubavitch Shchita.

CrownHeights.info advises those in the Crown Heights community who only eat Lubavitch Shchita to check their purchases to ensure that the meat they are purchasing fits to their standards.
