I just purchased Kvuzat Yavneh olive oil in a reputable pesach store with a Badatz Yerushalayim Heschsher and an OU – P.
You can imagine my shock when I discovered that under the Badatz symbol, which was printed quite blurry as opposed to the clear OU – P next to it, were even blurrier, almost illegible words stating that Badatz certifies it for year round use ONLY.
Nowhere on the bottle does it say 100% olive oil or the ingredients it contains, so my family could have very well been eating kitnius, Rachmana Litzlan.
Of course there are so many heterim that I am sure there was no problem, but on Pesach, our family strives to be extra stringent.
It is shocking that a company can deliberately market its product as kosher for pesach up to the highest standards when it is completely the opposite!
I am posting this so that hopefully other families who have fallen for this scam can be aware.
I hope you will spread the word and prevent other families from being nichshal with this.
