The following kashrus notice is from the Chicago Rabbinical Council on February 20, 2008.

This notice is meant to clarify the policy of the cRc regarding honey. All honey sold in retail or foodservice packaging requires a reliable hashgacha.
This is due to the fact that the kashrus status of the bottling process for these honeys may be compromised due to the possibility of non-kosher products being packaged on the same equipment.

The following kashrus alert is from the Chicago Rabbinical Council on February 18, 2008.

Several stores sell salads under the Orval Kent and/or Chef’s Solutions label, and many of these salads bear a cRc kosher symbol. There are very similar salads being sold in the same stores, with seemingly identical packages, but do not bear the cRc logo. Only those salads in containers bearing the cRc logo (or other reliable certifications) should be purchased, as not all are produced under rabbinical supervision. This rule is true with most products requiring hashgacha. The consumer should always look for a reliable hashgacha on each package being purchased, as not all are made in the same facility or under the same circumstances.
