The following kashrus alert clarification is from Orthodox Union on March 9, 2004.
Last week the OU sent out an alert regarding Murray Goulburn AMF (Anhydrous Milkfat) and/or Butter from plant# 581. The original message distinguished between products bearing the OUD symbol and those that do not. Additional investigation has determined that at least with regards to the AMF, there appears to have been some fraudulent labels that bear an OUD symbol.

Please note that these fraudulent labels are not being produced by Murray Goulburn. Rather, it appears that along the distribution line at least one broker who is not affiliated with Murray Goulburn has relabeled and/or repackaged AMF using the Murray Goulburn name. The matter is being investigated further.
Please see the attached fraudulent label, Signs of the fraudulent labels may include any or all of the following:
  1. Misspelling of the Goulburn name "Goldbourn" ("Produced by Murray Goldbourn"). There is another spot on the label where the name is spelled properly.
  2. The Kosher symbol appearing as a "U" inside a circle and the "D" inside a square.
  3. Lot code beginning with "ram" together with the name "Maffra" and "Establishment No. 581" appearing on the label.
Action Items:
  1. Please check product appearing in your plants and see if any of these signs of forgery are present and/or if there is no kosher symbol on the package.
  2. If you suspect that your plant has received products bearing a fraudulent label, please provide Rabbi Katzenstein and Rabbi Ossey a Company Name, Contact name and phone number for the broker selling this product as well as the company that purchased it.
  3. Obviously, don't use the product unless it has the customary OUD symbol, bears #581 plant number and does not contain one of signs of forgery mentioned above
  4. If you have any questions, please contact Rabbi Avram Ossey., Phone:212-613-8314, Fax:212-613-0652, E-Mail: osseya@ou.org
