The following kashrus alert is from the Hakhel.info on May 6, 2014.

There are two 'bagel stores' along the Kings Highway strip in Brooklyn in which in one carefully reads the sign it is only the 'bagels' that are certified as Kosher. If one enters the store he may (but not necessarily will) realize that all of the items that could be placed on the bagel such as cheeses and the like are not Kosher, for there is a kashrus certification relating only to the bagels) that is displayed. The lesson: When one enters a food establishment for the first time--before purchasing anything, he should survey the situation to ensure that the Kashrus really meets his standards--and indeed that everything in the establishment is Kosher at all!
