OU Kosher Advisory Arnold’s Bread

April 24, 2017 from the OU:

Arnold's Various breads, Bimbo Bakeries USA
The Orthodox Union does not certify dairy breads. Recently, many breads manufactured by Bimbo Bakeries USA, including some Arnold brand breads, were reformulated and now contain dairy. As a result, breads that were previously certified by the Orthodox Union no longer carry the OU Symbol. Consumers should look for the OU symbol to ascertain that a product is kosher.

Ed. note: Consumers contact Bimbo Bakery at 800-984-0989 to express their concerns about this loss of supervision and the change in the product formulation.

April 24, 2017 from the ORB - Updated Information on Arnold's Breads:

Bimbo Bakeries, which manufactures several brands of sandwich bread, rolls, and pastries, including Arnold's Breads, has reformulated at least one of their bread recipes. Because the OU does not certify dairy breads nor breads made on dairy equipment, the OU will no longer appear on many Arnold's items.

Arnold's dinner rolls, hamburger buns, and hot dog buns are manufactured on different equipment, are unaffected by this change, and therefore will retain the OU's supervision.

For a complete list of breads and other bakery products made by Bimbo, see www.bimbobakeriesusa.com/brand.

The bakery is responding to consumer complaints about the reformulation. Consumers should contact Bimbo Bakery at 800-984-0989 to express their concerns about the reformulation and consequent loss of OU supervision.
