The following kashrus alert is from the cRc on July 2, 2010..

It has come to our attention that certain frozen yogurt stores under the "Yoz" name are selling product claiming to be certified by the cRc. As best as we can determine, the cRc does not certify the frozen yogurt mix that they are selling and we definitely do not certify any of their stores.
Additionally, the Yoz website lists their frozen yogurt as being certified by the cRc. This is also not true. Attempts are being made to correct the situation.
