Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus alert is from Star-K with additional information from the cRc on April 13, 2010.

Although Safeway Supermarkets is a non-Jewish corporation, the Eastern Seaboard Safeway stores order 80% of their groceries from C & S, a Jewish distributor. These products will arrive in stores by April 18th. Chometz which was purchased immediately after Pesach may be used. However, for three weeks starting from April 18th through May 9th, 2010, chometz products such as cereals and pasta should not be purchased from Safeway.
From the cRc: Please note: This does not apply to Chicago area Safeway / Dominick`s stores.

The following clarifying information is from Rabbi Elazar M. Teitz on April 15, 2010.
Regarding the alert about Safeway purchasing chametz from C & S, a Jewish-owned firm, please be advised that (1) C & S also supplies Pathmark, Giant, Stop 'n' Shop, Grand Union, Key Foods, Target, Waldbaum and many others; it is the second-largest supplier of groceries to US supermarkets. (2) C & S sold its chametz through me, as it has for the past several years. So did another large wholesaler, White Rose, and several major supermarket chains: Pathmark, Shoprite and Foodtown -- both the parent corporations, and the individual stores owned by Jews.
