We used to buy a lot from this company because they were Shomer Shabbos. Since this happened, the website shows they are open on Shabbos.http://www.jta.org/news/article/2010/04/09/1011481/babyagecom-ceo-sued-over-anti-semitic-remarksA former employee of an online baby equipment retailer is suing its CEO for allegedly making frequent anti-Semitic remarks.In his suit against BabyAge.com, Shlomo Hecht claims that in January 2009 company CEO Jack Kiefer told Hecht “in an angry tone that he did not want a 'Jew Boy Club' in the office” and made it clear that he did not want Hecht observing Jewish holidays, the Wilkes-Barre, Pa. Times Leader reported.The suit further alleges that Kiefer and other executives “plotted to eliminate all Jewish employees in high level positions, and that Kiefer told Hecht a certain employee was fired because he was a 'typical (expletive) Jew, that is corrupt through and through.'”Hecht says he was let go last Aug. 25 because of his religion. He is seeking $225,205 for breach of contract and $11,925 for legal expenses stemming from a lawsuit brought by BabyAge in 2009 against Hecht that eventually was voluntarily dismissed.Calls to BabyAge.com for comment were not returned.

http://menachemlubinsky.com/kosher/ako-establish-liquor-committee-confront-changing-kashrus-status/A bottle of Scotch at a Kiddush in Monsey is quickly removed by the local rabbi after he had received word that the kashrus of the brand was in question. This scene has been repeating itself with increasing frequency, prompting the Association of Kashrus Organizations (AKO) to establish a Liquor Committee. According to Rabbi Sholem Fishbane, the executive director of AKO, the purpose of the committee will be “to keep up with the latest fast developing changes in the liquor world and how it affects its kashrus status.” Three sub-committees were formed to focus on Scotch, Beer, and American and Canadian whiskeys. AKO is preparing to host a Vaadim (local kashrus committees) Convention in Dallas on February 22 and 23. Over 60 representatives from the local kashrus committees will be meeting to discuss standards that affect their respective jurisdictions including; Savannah, Oregon, San Antonia, Nova Scotia, Florida, Houston, Detroit, Kansas, Waterbury, Minnesota, Atlanta, Chicago, and New York.
http://www.shefameats.com/aboutus.htmlShefa Meats Ltd. is a kosher meat production and wholesale facility, located in the heart of Toronto, Ontario. Our meats are distributed locally and abroad. We supply to restaurants and retailers the world-over.Federally inspected – Est. 427, we are also HACCP recognized. Our meats are certified kosher by the COR – the main kosher certifying body of Canada headed by Rabbi Y. S. Felder and we are currently supervised by Rabbi S. H. Adler; and Machzekei HaDas – under the auspices of Rabbi M. Ochs, Shlita.Shefa Meats Ltd. is the result of a concerted growth effort in 1999, when meat entrepreneurs and principal owners Yaakov Luss and Tzvi Hirschman expanded their retail Goldstein’s to the current federal location. Goldstein’s, a widely popular, Toronto-based kosher butcher shop, that had served the Jewish community for close to half a century, was purchased by the duo in 1989.Hirschman, a Torontonian, is the son of prominent Rabbi Y.M. Hirschman of the local Kollel Avreichim.
What does this have to do with Costco? And why should we beware of the veggies there?
Shefa Meats ships product meant for Pesach with a best before date of BEFORE Pesach. The retailer who sold it to me says Shefa ( Yaacov Luss) refuses to return his phone calls when this retailer wants to discuss it with him, & Luss ignores this customer's attempts to contact him as well. Luss's attitude doesn't encourage Kashrut.
