Tevilas Kelim for Utensils Made by Irreligious Jews

The grape juice bottles with a triangle on them are manufactured in Israel. However the company that manufactures them desecrates Shabos – does this obligate a person to toivel them even though the company is Jewish.
If I am required to toivel them – what is the din if I already bottled 160 shekels worth of pure olive oil in them.

Answer:

If the bottles were produced by Jews, there is no need to toivel them, even if the Jews in question desecrate Shabbos.
