The following kashrus alert is from Star-K Keepingyoukurrent for Pesach 2006.

International Products- some popular brands which are kosher certified when produced in the US are being imported from countries where they are produced without certifiction. This seems to be occuring especially with chocolate, candy, and cereal found in club and dollar stores. Consumers should always check the packaging of all items for a kosher symbol and not rely on product recognition.

The following kashrus notice is from cRc on March 20, 2006.

Allergen concerns have brought about a new federal labeling law requiring a warning label on any product manufactured on equipment that is also used to manufacture dairy products. This warning does not necessarily reflect the kosher status of the product. Even a pareve item that was made on dairy equipment that was kashured before production, would still be required by law to bear the warning on the label. The product, however, would be pareve.
