"People see the hashgacha and do not realize that it is expired and that it does not apply to the treif hot dogs. While the Kashrus certification does have a disclaimer stating that only the items listed are kosher – there are dozens of frum people that are purchasing the hot dogs."

"The Kashrus letter states: The following are certified Kosher: the lemonade, the cola, the smoothies, mustard and marinara sauce. The following items are Kosher Dairy: all pretzels, the coffee, and the following dips: Vanilla icing, Chocolate icing and the caramel dip. The Cheese Dip is NOT certified Kosher. Any item not listed here is NOT certified kosher. This certification for the above items at the Pretzel Factory, Palisades Mall, Nyack, NY shall be valid until February 3, 2019, at which time it is subject to renewal. It is signed by Rabbi Yaakov Spivak."
