The product was sold in plastic containers with a stick-on label bearing code date “08/06” (on the bottom of the container) and UPC number 7 87434 22222 1. The recall was the result of routine sampling by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) which revealed that the finished product contained the bacteria. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as the FDA and the company continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.
Consumers who have purchased SCHMALTZ HERRING, CODE 08/06, are urged to return it to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-718-851-1011.

The following kashrus advisory is from the Orthodx Union on July 23, 2003.

The Orthodox Union wishes to inform the public that Yasgur Farms Ice Cream Store located on Port Jervis Rd. (Rt. 42) in Monticello, NY is not and has never been under Orthodox Union supervision, despite their posting of Letters of Certification referencing ingredients/ice cream used.A posted Letter of Certification for ice cream mix should not be construed as Kashruth certification for a retail ice cream store. There is no assurance that Kosher ice cream mix, toppings, or cones are being used. Additionally, there is a concern that non-Kosher food may come into contact with equipment or utensils. Only on-site supervision (indicated by a Letter of Certification specifying the retail store) ensures the Kashruth of the ice cream.
