The following kashrus alert is from the OK on August 3, 2015.

Several people have seen non-kosher food trucks in Manhattan bearing an unauthorized OK kosher symbol on the banner. OK Kosher Certification is asking for the public’s help to stop this fraudulent use of the OK kosher symbol. We have sent a mashgiach to speak with the owner of the truck, who agreed to remove the sign. Unfortunately, the sign was up again the next day. These trucks change their location every day.
We have contacted NYS Kosher Law Enforcement and they suggested we advertise to the public.
If anyone sees these trucks please contact OK Kosher Certification at 718-756-7500 and report the location and license plate number of the truck; so that further action can be taken. Reports can also be made to NYS Kosher Law Enforcement at Kosher@agriculture.ny.gov.
In the meantime – please tell all contacts about this. Help us prevent anyone from mistakenly eating from these non-kosher trucks.
