KASHRUS ALERT: Planters peanuts in Lakewod food boxes may not be Kosher

February 4, 2021 - From the The Lakewood Scoop:

"Take note, some food boxes may contain Planters peanuts which may not be Kosher."
Ed note: The Lakewood Scoop then references the alert below.

Kashrus alert on various Planters Nut Products

From the COR Detroit on July 29, 2015 with additional information on December 31, 2016 and updated July 29, 2020:

PLANTERS NUT PRODUCTS are acceptable only when bearing an OU symbol. Products bearing a K (which include most Planters Dry Roasted items and some Honey Roasted items) may contain gelatin, or may be produced on the same equipment as gelatin-containing products.

Note that Planters Honey Roasted Cashews in the 3 oz. bag and 8.25 oz. can bear an OU, but the 1.5 oz. and 2 oz. size bags bear a K because they are not produced on an OU approved production line. Every package should be carefully checked for the OU symbol.
