PregVit® and PregVit® folic 5 Certified Kosher & Passover Compliant

October 26, 2016, - From the COR:
Recently, Health Canada required that Duchesnay, the manufacturers of PregVit® and PregVit® folic 5, remove the COR kosher logo from their packaging as Health Canada wishes to limit the certifications mentioned on packaging to certifications that it controls. Over the last few weeks, the packaging change has been rolled out and this has led to questions from kosher consumers. Please note that PregVit® and PregVit® folic 5 remain certified as kosher and Passover compliant by the Kashruth Council of Canada (COR) and the COR kosher logo can still be found in the "Preparing your Pregnancy booklet which is included in the product boxes.
You can contact the Kashruth Council of Canada at info@cor.ca.
