Consumer Kashrut Alerts

Newer alerts

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.
