The following kashrus notice is from the OK dated June 12, 2007 .

TROPICANA ORANGE JUICE with OMEGA 3: This type of Tropicana orange juice contains a type of fish oil know as Omega 3. The fish oil is in very small amounts, but we still feel it is our obligation to the public who rely on the OK to bring it to their attention. Chazal tell us that is a danger to eat fish and meat together. This is the reason we asked Tropicana to put the "F" after the OK symbol, which they kindly did.

The following health alert is from the FDA on June 14, 2007 .

The Colgate–Palmolive Company today warned that counterfeit toothpaste falsely packaged as "Colgate" has been found in several dollar-type discount stores in four states: NY, NJ, PA, and MD. There are indications that this product does not contain fluoride and may contain Diethylene Glycol. The Company stated that it does not use, nor has ever used, Diethylene Glycol as an ingredient in Colgate toothpaste anywhere in the world. The counterfeit toothpaste can be easily recognized because it is labelled as "Manufactured in South Africa." Colgate does not import toothpaste into the United States from South Africa. In addition, the counterfeit packages examined so far have several misspellings including: "isclinically" "SOUTH AFRLCA" "South African Dental Assoxiation". Counterfeit toothpaste is not manufactured or distributed by Colgate and has no connection with the Company whatsoever. Colgate is working closely with the US FDA to help to identify those responsible for the counterfeit product. Consumers who suspect they may have purchased counterfeit product, can call Colgate’s toll-free number at 1 800 468 6502.
