Kosher Caterer

The office of Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice has opened a criminal investigation into allegations that Morrell Caterers of Woodbury, L.I., prepared shrimp, lobster, pork and other non-kosher food in the same kitchen in which kosher food was prepared.

Both Thomas Cataldo, Morrell’s former general manager, left, and Michael Savitsky, its former executive chef.
