Kashrus Alert: Imagine Chicken Broth

December 8, 2016- from the COR Detroit and the Atlanta Kashruth Commission:

Many IMAGINE brand Soups & Broths are Kosher and bear the OU symbol. Currently, this includes “Creamy” soups (OU Pareve), Vegetable and Vegetarian broths (OU Pareve), and “Kosher Chicken Broth” (OU Meat). However, there are also many Imagine soups (chunky style) and broths (regular chicken and beef) that are not Kosher and bear no OU. Each carton needs to be carefully checked for the OU symbol.

In particular, consumers should be aware that Imagine Chicken Broth, containing real chicken, is made in both Kosher and non-Kosher versions. The Kosher version states “Kosher” prominently in the product name and bears OU Meat. Cartons without Kosher marking are non-Kosher.

From the COR Detroit: ONE 32 OZ. CARTON OF NON-KOSHER IMAGINE brand CHICKEN BROTH (with no Kosher marking) MAY HAVE MISTAKENLY BEEN SOLD RECENTLY AT ONE STOP KOSHER FOOD MARKET. PLEASE CHECK YOUR PURCHASES.

Ed. Note: Consumers should check each package of each product that one purchases for the kosher symbol

November 2, 2016 - from the FDA:

Golden Star International Inc. is recalling its 10-oz. packages of "Walnut Ladies Finger Cookies" food treats because they may contain undeclared Eggs and Soybean oil/lecithin.
