Urgent Kashrut notices on various items

It would seem that the UOS’s kashrut departments have had a busy first few weeks of January as they announced five cautionary notices in one foul swoop today – their first Kashrut Notice of the year.

ANAT PITA:

“Anat’s Pita in Johannesburg is Parev and Mehadrin when bearing a Beth Din sticker,” says the notice.

However, “Anat’s Pita in Cape Town is Parev and not Mehadrin, unless indicated otherwise,” says the wrning, noting that the hechsher “is incorporated on their packaging.” So, Kashniks, watch for that one, especially in Cape Town.

LADYSMITH BUTTER:

“Ladysmith Butter is incorrectly labelled as Parev. This product is Milchik,” warns the notice. Well, one wouldn’t expect anyone with a modicum of common sense to to not realise that mistake, but hopefully the Beth Din will ensure that the packaging is either replaced or that stickers are placed over the incorrect hechsher.

McCAINS BROCOLLI:

“McCains Brocolli erroneously bears a Beth Din logo,” says the notice, but that “this product is not certified as kosher.” Again, one would imagine that the error will be corrected as soon as possible – but as that is not always the case, Kashniks, keep your eyes open for this one.

FINN CRISP:

The notice simply states that: “Finn Crisp is no longer approved by the Beth Din.” Under the circumstances and until notified to the contrary, one should consider that this applies to all Finn Crisp products.

    ‘Haha – thanks teach. In our rush to get the info out to the kosher community before Shabbat, we didn’t spot that one. It is verbatim as the kashrut department sent it us:

    “McCains Brocolli erroneously bears a Beth Din logo.”

    We now note another error as McCain is the name of the brand, so should the product not then correctly be called \”McCain’s Broccoli\” with an apostrophe \”s\”?

    ‘I like the word \” Kashniks ! \”

    Does that mean people who are kosher and observe Kashrut ! ?

    Do you think it is in the Oxford dictionary ! ?

    We live in interesting times .’

    ‘You can eat broccoli David, but only after you pay. Then suddenly it becomes kosher.’
