The following South African kashrus alert is from the Beth Din of Johannesburg on May 27, 2013.

"Yogoorus" frozen yoghurt store in Melrose Arch is NOT under Beth Din supervision. They have displayed a photocopy of a letter written by one of the Kashrut secretaries, addressed to a local distributor, confirming that certain imported products are kosher. These products form part of the yoghurt mix but neither the final mix not the store are supervised or certified by the Beth Din. This is an internal business letter and NOT a certificate. Their use and display of the letter which gives the impression that their store and/or products is certified, is misleading.

The following updated South African kashrus alert is from the Beth Din of Johannesburg on May 27, 2013.

Below please find a re-send of an alert sent recently. Existing stock of the “parev” labelled product is expected to last a few more weeks. New packaging has already been printed with the correct logo. Beacon Chocolate Coated Jelly Tots are certified kosher, Milchik. Unfortunately one batch has been labelled with the Parev logo. Beacon has issued the following statement: "We have checked our packaging and indeed it incorrectly states Parev. Of course it should have been Milchik, as per Beth Din instruction, due to the chocolate coating. Our sincere apologies - please could you inform your consumers that we did make a mistake and that we will rectify it immediately."
