The following kashrus alert is from the COR Detroit on July 11, 2014.

SNAPPLE FRUIT PUNCH JUICE DRINK normally does not bear an OK symbol because it contains grape juice that may not be Kosher. Recently, special arrangement was made for temporary approval of Snapple Fruit Punch, only for 64 oz. containers produced between March - May 2014, and only when bearing the OK symbol.
Locally, One Stop Kosher currently has this specially certified product. However, some 32 oz. containers without the OK symbol were mistakenly also placed on the shelf for a short time. Please check your purchases.
There are also other Snapple varieties that are not certified, plus some that may be dairy or dairy equipment. Each bottle or can should be checked carefully for the OK symbol and its Pareve / Dairy status.
