Boston Orthodox Rabbis Launch Campaign to Insure Healthy Live Poultry

Download PDF for this date

A campaign against those poultry dealers who sell diseased, maimed, condemned and unwholesome fowl as Kosher products has been launched here by the Vaad Harabonim, Council of Orthodox Rabbis of Greater Boston.

The Vaad Harabonim has undertaken to issue special identifying cards, which are to be posted in the windows of those poultry dealers found to be bonafide by the organization.

In its campaign, the organization asks the co-operation of the public and the press for the purpose of disseminating this information.

Associated with the Vaad Harabonim in this project are the New England Poultry Company, the Fulton Market, Beacon Live Poultry Company, A Philips and Son, Aronson Brothers, American Poultry Company, A. B. Reade, Main Poultry Company, Glick Brothers, Somerville Live Poultry Company, Webster Poultry Company Malden Live Poultry Company and Malden Sanitary Poultry Company.
