The following kashrus alert is from the KSA dated November 22, 2013.

Many consumers are under the impression that various Yogenfruz stores are kosher certified by the KSA (Kosher Supervision of America). Some establishments may even display an unauthorized KSA logo on their menu board and on the front window. They also may have a Kosher certificate hanging in their store stating that their products are Kosher certified, however, this is not the case. Yogenfruz is a national retailer of frozen yogurt products with outlets across the U.S. KSA does not presently certify any Yogenfruz stores. Please note that the KSA symbol which appears on any product being sold at these stores is only valid for products in their original factory-sealed packages. Once the packaging is opened, the kosher certification of that product is no longer valid. KSA reminds the consumer that this same principle applies to all non-certified stores selling ice cream, smoothies, and other similar products. If you have any questions or concerns please contact the KSA office at (310)282-0444 or email us at consumers@ksakosher.com
