( The French kitchenware company Tefal, which is known for its nonstick pans, is directing customers to “Palestine” for a store that is located in Israel.

Although Tefal’s Jerusalem store is located in the Atarot industrial zone, which is not under Palestinian sovereignty, the drop-down menu for the Middle East portion of the Tefal website’s “Where to buy” section lists “Palestine” as an option, but not “Israel.”

Newpan, the company that imports Tefal products to Israel, said the website issue “will be handled as soon as possible,” Israel Hayom reported.
