The following yoshon alert is from the Star-K Keeping You Kurrent for March, 2008.

Due to a sudden and unexpected rise in the cost of spring wheat, bakery distributors have sold their existing spring wheat depleting their yoshon inventories. Some distributors have stopped and others may stop delivering yoshon spring wheat flour to local bakeries, pizza shops and other eateries. Th e Star-K is informing the public that some Star-K establishments will not have yoshon flour available and will be forced to discontinue yoshon until Pesach. The Star-K will be posting signs in each establishment as soon as their in-house yoshon supplies have been depleted, stating that “Yoshon is no longer available.” Consumers are urged to be on the lookout for these notices as they appear.
