Special edition Neviot water sixpacks in honor of the Eurovision did not receive the ultra-Orthodox Badatz kashrut stamp, ynet reported on Monday.
The discovery came to light after customers went into a Yesh Chesed supermarket branch of Shufersal in Bnei Brak and photographed a sign by the store, which warned of the lack of the certification.
"The six-packs of Neviot are without the stamp of the Badatz of the Eda Haredit [ultra-Orthodox Kashrut sign], because of the Eurovision designs."
Ynet reported that sources in the industry said  that several packs of Neviot, which displayed the faceless Eurovision stars, were sent to the store by mistake
"Since the branch's customers know that Neviot water is usually under Badatz supervision, it was important for the branch to make it clear that this edition does not have such a kashrut," it said. "This was also done on editions of the children's water bottles, which exhibited pictures of characters such as Shrek."
