The following information on chodosh is from Rabbi Y. Herman and published at cRc on July 21, 2015.

The following is the new weekly crops bulletin from the US Department of Agriculture. The oats harvest is slowly starting. The harvest of the spring wheat and barley has not yet started, but is imminent. Here is the first tentative estimate of Chodosh dates. All the items below are subject to revision:

  1. Freshly baked items using spring wheat, including breads, challahs, bagels, rolls, pizza and some cakes and cookies may be Chodosh in the Midwest after the PURCHASE DATE of Aug 8. Elsewhere in the US, this date would be Aug 15.
  2. Packaged foods from spring wheat may be Chodosh after the PACKING date of Aug 8, or the PURCHASE date of Aug 22.
  3. Noodles and pasta may be Chodosh after the PACKING date of Aug 15 and the PURCHASE date of Sept 1.
  4. Barley, such as pearled barley, may be Chodosh after the PACKING date of Aug 8 and PURCHASE date of Aig 22.
  5. Oats: Last year, according to the O-U all oats used in cereals had a Chodosh PACKING date of Sept 1 or later, PURCHASE DATE of Sept 15 or later. Exceptions to this included General Mills cereals such as Cheerios and Quaker oats. We are waiting for an update on this for the forthcoming season from the O-U. Oats used in non-cereal products such as oatmeal cookies, may be Chodosh starting a packing date of Jul 26.
  6. Barley malt (also listed in the ingredients as “malt”) may be Chodosh as of the packing date of Dec 15. Package codes should be checked after the purchase date of Jan 15 for beer and Mar 15 for malt in other products.

The following kashrus alert is from the cRc on July 21, 2015.

Produce from Israel requires special attention to ensure that it is "kosher". This includes oversight that it is neither arlah nor from shemittah, and that terumah and ma’aser are separated.
For more on those terms, see IsraeliProduce
As part of its certification of Hungarian Kosher (Skokie), the cRc addresses these issues for bell peppers, carrots, Jaffa oranges and any other Israeli produce offered for sale. Accordingly, consumers may consume all produce sold at this store and can rest assured that all of the mitzvos specific to the land of Israel have been fulfilled.

The following milk allergy alert is from the FDA on July 20, 2015.

Barrel O’ Fun Snack Foods Co. of Perham, MN is recalling one specific lot of Vic’s Original White Popcorn 1-1/8oz size bags (UPC 0-46555-00062-1) because it may contain an undeclared milk allergen.
The recall is limited to one specific manufacture date of Vic’s Original White Popcorn (1-1/8oz bags) bearing the Best By date of 09DEC2015 and Manufacture Code of 5195M75. The code is printed on the upper right front of the bags. No other lots, bag sizes or products are affected.
Distribution of the affected product is limited to product distributed through foodservice and retail in the following states: IA, MN, MO, NE, SD, and WI.
The recall was initiated after it was discovered that white cheddar popcorn, a product containing milk, was distributed in packaging for a different product, Original White Popcorn, that did not reveal the presence of milk. Subsequent investigation indicates the problem was caused by a temporary breakdown in the company's production and packaging processes.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled product are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
Consumers with questions may contact Barrel O’ Fun Snack Foods Co. at 1-800-346-4910. Monday - Thursday 7am - 5pm CST and Friday 7am-11am CST
