Tiverya Kashrus Mashgichim to Fight Tolaim With Laser Guns


vegetablesAhead of the summer season, kashrus mashgichim in the northern city of Tiverya will be equipped with laser guns designed to eliminate bugs, the local rabbinical council decided recently, according to a report in Yediot Achronot. The guns, which have been developed by US scientists, eliminate insects using a laser beam and are safe to use around people. Every mahgiach in the city will be required to carry the gun on him during visits to the venues under his charge, in order to prevent food infestation.Rabbi Rafael Cohen of the Tiverya municipality kashrus department said that the guns’ purchase will be paid for by business owners who hold a kashrus certificate issued by the city.

“We are currently conducting test runs in order to check the (guns’) operation. Most of the public is not aware of the fact that eating insects is as bad as eating pork and therefore strictly forbidden.

“At the moment all open-air businesses are obligated to shut down earlier in the day in order to avoid the problem of flying bugs. We hope that the laser guns will help solve this problem,” Rabbi Cohen added.
