Kosher News and Announcements

The following information was received by e-mail from the Orthodox Union on July 17, 1998.

Starkist ceased producing tuna with a dairy component in February 1997.  All Starkist tuna is presently produced without any dairy ingredients and is thus Pareve.  This includes both the "albacore" and "light" varieties.  To reflect this change, Starkist has recently reprinted labels with only the OU designation indicating Pareve.  There are currently, however, many Starkist tuna cans which still bear OUD.   The Company has been depleting a large quantity of OUD labels still in stock and using them on Pareve products. Any Starkist tuna can with a code that ends with the letter F and the three numerical digits are greater than 057 (e.g. 153F), or the code ends with a letter that is beyond F in the alphabet (e.g. 012G or 023H), contains product which is Pareve.
