Fraud: “Emes Kosher-Jel”

May 2, 2007, CNBC expose on “Emes Kosher-Jel,” a fraudulent company which produced what it said was a vegetarian “gelatin.” Come to find out, it was exposed as a fraud a decade ago, by a scientist at Loma Linda, but word never got out. The pressure increased in 2005, and the company, always a shadowy business, disappeared.

The Attorney General of Illinois has been repeatedly informed about this fraud, but has refused to prosecute. See articles and documentation at Vegetarians in Paradise (latest update here).
