The following kashruth alert is from the Kof-K on April 14, 2000.

Due to Gross Kashrus Passover Violations, Kof-K kosher supervision withdrew Kosher for Passover certification for the year 1999 for Passover Product Manufactured by BP Gourmet. In addition, the kof-K demanded a recall and refused to certify any future Passover Productions.
Despite the fact that BP Gourmet has engaged a new kashrus certifying agency, they have remained uncooperative. Product bearing the Kof-K kosher for Passover designation is still on the market more than one year after Kof-K withdrew certification.
Any product bearing the kof-K kosher for Passover designation should NOT be used. Kof-K is currently pursuing litigation in order to prevent any further compromise of kosher standards.
