The Lawfare Project Files Complaint in Canada
“Made in Palestine” labels are “false and misleading” under applicable law and must be corrected
Today, The Lawfare Project and Professor Eugene Kontorovich — with the assistance of Toronto-based law firm RE-LAW LLP — filed a formal complaint with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) to challenge the “Made in Palestine” labels on olive oils sold throughout Canada. The complaint argues that these labels are false and misleading, in violation of Canadian labelling law and a recent CFIA decision regarding Israeli products, because Canada does not recognize “Palestine” as a country. The filing was first covered by the National Post.
Goods cannot be produced in a country that does not exist. That is, even if the “Made in Palestine” labels were supplemented with language stating, e.g., that the goods were “produced in an area administered by the Palestinian Authority,” this description would still be false and misleading because the Canadian government does not recognize a “State of Palestine” in the first place.
