Kashrus Alert: Unlabeled canned goods, becomes labeled with a Hashgocha?
Most hashgochas do not keep a log of traceabilty for canned goods. Therefore when a packer purchases unlabeled canned goods at a good price & puts on his own label with the Hashgocha, the item is to be considered as non-certified kosher, which most kosher consumers will not accept.
It's alledged that the Delight Company (California Delight) or any other name they may use is a packer that purchases on the open marked "unlabeled canned goods' and labels them with labels that have a Hashgocha.
Of Course you'll find some of their product with a code that indicates a hashgocha, but a lot of the product is bought unlabeled & sold in areas where people don't check for codes.
Isn't of interest that he is always cheaper, never runs out of product.
