Insect Infestation alert on Organic Broccoli Slaw:

July 23, 2020, from the cRc:

The cRc has previously recommended the use of any (non-organic) broccoli slaw without any special washing or checking. However, this summer we have been finding an extremely high level of infestation which we believe are a result of an unusually hot season in the growing areas plus a myriad of covid-19 related changes in the processing farms and plants.

Therefore, at this time, we recommend that broccoli slaw only be used after it is first checked with the thrip cloth method which can be found at https://www.crcweb.org/NewFruitandVeglist.pdf. We will continue to check broccoli slaw and the factors causing such high infestation. Once the situation returns back to normal we will alert the public of the change.

May 7, 2019, 2018 from the cRc:

After months of research, the cRc continues to find a high amount of insect infestation in organic broccoli slaw. We therefore are no longer recommending using organic broccoli slaw without a reliable hashgacha but continue to recommend non-organic broccoli slaw (which we are continuing to monitor as well).

Empire Kosher Poultry Switches Hashgacha

July 21, 2020: From CrownHeights.info:

"The largest provider of Kosher poultry in the United States, Empire Kosher Poultry, made a sudden change in hashgacha, going from the Khal Adath Yeshuurun Hechsher, under Rabbi Yisroel Mantel, to Tartikov, under Rabbi Rabbi Yechiel Babad."

"While the change was unexpected, the OU Kosher (Orthodox Union) continued to give their hechsher throughout."

"The reason for the sudden change was not provided by either Empire Kosher Poultry or the Khal Adath Yeshuurun Hechsher."

From Empire Kosher: "Aside from our onsite team of over 50 rabbis, our products are certified kosher by the most highly regarded kosher supervising agencies, the Orthodox Union and Rabbi Yechiel Babad, Tartikov Rav. Their oversight guides all processes and procedures regarding the kosher status of our products."

July 21, 2020 from KAJ:

"Effective July 20, 2020, the Rabbinate of K’hal Adath Jeshurun (KAJ) has terminated its supervision of Empire Kosher Poultry in Mifflintown, PA. This includes chicken, turkey and all other products manufactured under the Empire label. All products manufactured up to this date are still under our supervision."
