The following South African kashrus notice is from the Beth Din of Johannesburg on May 12, 2011.

In the interim, the new kosher stock of Mrs Balls Chutney may be identified by the “best before date” appearing on the container. The “best before date” on Kosher Mrs Balls Chutney must be: On glass bottles – from February 2013 and later On plastic jars – from July 2012 and later Kosher Mrs Balls Chutney in catering size containers already bears the Beth Din logo. The following varieties are included:
