The City of Jerusalem issued a closure order Thursday for Oaf Glatt chicken slaughterhouse due to serious health and sanitation violations, Behadrei Haredim reported.
Oaf Glatt, located in the Atarot Industrial Zone, has the strictest kosher supervision available but was an immediate danger to public health, Ministry of Health and city officials found.
The slaughterhouse had defective refrigeration systems and operated without a proper license and under unsanitary conditions.
Oaf Glatt was also a major polluter of the environment, damaging both soil and precious groundwater in the largely arid country.
