Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus advisory is from the OU on January 31, 2008.

Products of Freshwater Fish Marketing Corporation (FFMC), located in Winnipeg, Mannitoba, Canada have been certified by the Orthodox Union for many years. This facility, which only processes kosher fish, has been carefully reviewed and accepted by many respected kosher certifying agencies worldwide.
Recent irresponsible and false claims have been published concerning the integrity of the hashgacha as it was administered more than seven years ago, under a previous mashgiach A”H (who is no longer living), alleging that non-kosher fish was sold as kosher. It should be noted that the writer of the piece was identified by the newspaper as “a former fish marketer who believes the FFMC’s monopoly should be broken.”
OU Kosher urges everyone to realize that charges leveled in print can be, and often are, false. The Orthodox Union urges the kosher-consuming public to recognize such spurious innuendo for its true nature.
