Kashrus advisory on Passover hotel certification

December 15, 2017 - from cRc:

The cRc wants to inform all those that rely on the cRc list of recommended kosher agencies (http://www.crcweb.org/agency_list.php) to keep in mind that many times the recommendations do not extend to Pesach Hotels. Each hotel and its hashgacha should be independently reviewed annually despite any previous approvals.

Insect infestation advisory on frozen raspberries and blackberries

December 15, 2017 - from cRc:

Please note that due to a high incidence of insects that have been discovered in current batches of frozen blackberries and raspberries, the cRc is currently recommending that store-bought frozen blackberries and frozen raspberries not be consumed whole. This should not be construed as a prohibition against purchasing frozen blackberries and raspberries for purposes of blending thoroughly to produce smoothies and the like - although the cRc intends to conduct further review into this matter.
