The following chodosh information is from Rabbi Herman on January 18, 2010.

"HARAV HAGOAN ELYASHIV SHLITA RETRACTS PSAK ON BRAN: On Dec 21 we announced that we had received a psak from Harav Elyashiv that stated that wheat bran and oat bran have no problem of Chodosh, even if they come from Chodosh grain. It turns out that the psak was based on the incorrect assumption that such bran today is basically produced for animal food. When it was explained to Harav Elyashiv that such bran is very commonly used for human food, he stated that bran coming from Chodosh grain should be treated as Chodosh. Therefore, where oat bran is listed as an ingredient, the usual packing cutoff date of Jul 26 should be used and for wheat bran Aug 9, as has been assumed thusfar in the Guide."
