Consumer Kashrut Alerts

Insect Infestation of lettuces from California

April 28, 2017 - from the KIB:

Due to extreme weather conditions in California, there has been an increase of infestation in all types of infestation-prone produce, including Romaine Lettuce. Trained Mashgichim have found insects in these products even after repeated washings. Extra care should be taken when washing and checking these products, and it may be prudent to avoid purchasing them without a reliable certification until infestation levels have decreased.

Kosher Certified Dole Iceberg Availablity

April 27, 2017 - from the Star-K:

Due to heightened infestation issues, the availability of STAR-K certified iceberg from Dole is going to decrease for at least the next few weeks. Many bags will not bear the STAR-K symbol and they are NOT certified. Please advise your Kehillos and constituents to please check each and every bag for the STAR-K symbol.
Cabbage/cole slaw mixes seem to be fine, at least for the time being, but we are monitoring them closely as well and the status may also be subject to sudden change.
