Antichrist on kosher offer

    Asda has explained why a search for kosher food on its website prompted the response "antichrist".

    A JC reader was shocked to discover the word offered when he searched whether the supermarket stocked products made by the well-known kosher food company Manischewitz.

    The company said it was a glitch resulting from the website's use of pronunciation software. When a search term is not recognised, the site brings up the closest sounding match - which is how "Manischewitz" became "antichrist".

    An Asda spokesman said a digital team was fixing the glitch "as quickly as they can".
