Kosher Alert: Antonio Mozzarella Factory Fresh Mozzarella and Capicola Roll Mozzarella with Caipicola

November 13, 2022 from the Tablet K in response to a question from the editor:

"We do not certify the brand. This is/was an unauthorized use of our symbol. Further,the likelihood of it being a current picture of the item is slim as at the time of the unauthorized use in 2019 they confirmed it was a limited supply and the company had to destroy any labels they had and were fined by the NJ Dept of Agriculture Kosher Division. We will once again be reaching out to the NJ Dept of Agriculture Kosher Division to perform a follow up inspection to confirm there is no continued unauthorized use of the kosher symbol or violation of federal trademark laws."

Kashrut Information: TORTIYAS SUPERIOR DIPPING CHIPS Brazilian Lime

November 14, 2022 from the OU in response to a question from the editor:

The Torti-yahs are labeled OUD, but in fact, its true status, at the present time, is DE (Dairy Equipment).

What does DE mean? A DE product does not contain actual dairy ingredients, but it is manufactured with heat on dairy equipment. DE items may be eaten after meat, but not with meat at the same time.<

Many products qualify to be DE but are labeled OUD because OUD is a less confusing symbol for the kosher consumer. Also, to be a true DE product, the equipment must be properly cleaned of residue after dairy production, and that level of cleanliness is sometimes difficult to maintain and guarantee.
