Consumer Alerts and Information

September 13, 2006


Due to the recent very hot weather, the likelihood of infestation in stored food (e.g. flour) is very great. Please check these items before use.

Kashrus consumers should be aware that hospitals often serve meat meals coming from certified caterers together with dairy items. They may even take the airline-type kosher meal and shrinkwrap it with non-kosher items. Unless the certification symbol appears on the outermost wrapping, one cannot be sure the kashrus agency approved these combinations or added items.

Starbucks Frappuccino - Unlike other varieties of Starbucks bottled drinks, the Frappuccino Strawberries & Crème in the 9.5oz bottle is NOT certified kosher.

Campbell’s Vegetarian Vegetable Soup - is no longer certified as kosher by the OU. Product bearing the OU symbol was manufactured prior to the termination of the kosher certification.

Laffy Taffy - Peppermint is correctly labeled OU-D.
