"The Lebanese Army confiscated on Friday around five tons of expired food products in Beirut, including some produced in Israel.
An army statement said it raided two warehouses in the al-Tariq al-Jadideh area on Friday.
Among the goods confiscated were "food products, large amounts of powdered baby milk from foreign origins as well as Lebanese products such as oils, pickles and grains," it said. "Found among these were also products made in Israel."
"The expiry date of these products had been altered or hidden with a new one, and the devices used in the attempted date fraud were seized. Three people were arrested in connection with the investigation," it said.
Lebanon and Israel are at war and it is illegal for the two countries to trade."
