Kashrus alert on Dole Iceberg Salads

August 8, 2017 from the COR Detroit and confirmed by the Star-K:
The Star-K has advised that due to infestation conditions of the fields, it will not be certifying any Dole Iceberg salad this week, and this will likely extend into next week. Consumers will therefore find that the newer bags of Dole Iceberg salads now in stores do not bear the Star-K symbol. This also applies to several other brands such as Fresh Selections [Kroger], Little Salad Bar [Aldi], and Marketside [Walmart]. The Star-K also advises that even under normal circumstances, there are usually a few lots of salads a week that are not certified due to infestation, and are still sold nationwide without the Star-K symbol. Every bag should always be checked for the Star-K symbol.
