Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following revised kashrus information regarding is from the Vaad Hoeir of St. Louis on Sept. 11, 2013.

The Vaad Hoeir usually does not send out a Kashrus Alert when specific products become kosher certified. However, due to the popularity of the following items and the numerous calls we have received as to their kosher status, we wanted to let the public know that due to a change in kosher certification, the Vaad Hoeir now accepts these products. They may be regarded as kosher even without the RCC (Rabbinical Council of California) kosher symbol on the bottles or even with the old kosher symbol.

  • Sriracha Hot Chili Sauce
  • Sambal Oelek
  • Chili Garlic Sauce
Manufactured by Huy Fong Foods, Rosemead, CA

The following kashrus information regarding is Rabbi Eiditz on August 30, 2013.

"Special alert: Some kashrus agencies take over a kosher supervision but their logo does not appear for some time on the product due to a company’s desire to use up old labels or containers. This is the case with the Sriracha sauce bearing the Shield Mogen David K from Philadelphia which has been certified for over a year by the RCC but does not bear their label until all of the bottles will be used up. We do not recommend products bearing the previous symbol. "

"Another such confusing case is the Bob’s Red Mill products bearing the underlined K. Rabbi Teichman has been certifying that product for over a year as well but the old symbol remains on the product. The KIB does not recommend the previous certifications on both products. All of the Bob’s Red Mill products bearing the Underline K are reliably certified by Rabbi Teichman. Other products bearing that symbol remain not recommended."
