Berlin’s largest department store has pulled several Israeli goods from its shelves following a European Union rule outlawing “Made in Israel” tags on products made in West Bank Jewish settlements or in the Golan Heights.

A spokesperson for KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens) clarified, however, that the settlement goods would once again be sold by the store after they are labeled in accordance with the new EU guidelines.

“We have taken the corresponding [Israeli] products out from our line of goods,” KaDeWe spokeswoman Petra Fladenhofer told German newspaper Der Spiegel. “We will, after appropriate labeling, put them back in our product line.”
