Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus advisory is from OK on May 16, 2012.

Please be advised that TRADER JOE'S CHOCOLATE CHIPS are no longer certified Pareve. They are certified dairy (non-cholov Yisroel) when bearing the OK-D on the label.
Ed. note: You should complain at your local store or contact Trader Joes at www.traderjoes.com/about/general-feedback-form.asp or 626-599-3700 x 3035.
Additional information from the OK on May 18, 2012: "The kosher status of Trader Joe's dark chocolate chips has been changed from OK pareve to OK-D Dairy.
OK Kosher's decision to change the kosher status of the product is due to a change in the level of monitoring at the facility. Packages of Trader Joe's dark chocolate chips that bear the OK Pareve label were produced at a time when a high level of monitoring of the separation between pareve and dairy enabled OK Kosher to certify the product as pareve.
Currently, the monitoring of the level of separation between pareve and dairy is no longer sufficient to meet the requirements of OK Pareve. Therefore, according to OK standards, we cannot guarantee the pareve status. All other kosher standards and procedures required by OK Kosher are still in place.
OK Kosher is fully aware of the tremendous concern this change has caused consumers and we are working with the manufacturer to find possible solutions. If the status should revert to pareve at some time in the future, the public will be notified."
