Health Ministry asks police to probe false anti-milk ads

The Health Ministry dissociated itself on Sunday from advertisements that appeared in various parts of the country claiming the ministry recommends that people not drink milk.
The ads "were counterfeit and false and did not come from the ministry," the spokeswoman said.
The ministry said it regarded "very seriously the use of its symbol" and statements supposedly made by the ministry, as they were aimed at "misleading the public."
Its legal department has asked the Israel Police to investigate.
