Update: Welchs "heimish" Grape Juice-Tartikuv was told a few months back to pull the hashgocha -

We know all about the koshering, process, ingredients, crew, times, seals, labels, packaging, etc. To divulge more information may reveal our sources.


Note: The Zkan Ahron would asser the grape Juice (for all year as well), Tartikuv goes by the zkan Ahron.

A Hashgocha should never be based strictly on;
 "I have a chimrah/Hidur"
and the basics are overlooked, i-t'-s  n-o-t acceptable.


All year use??????

We wouldn't use it!

There are issues in the kashrus for pesach.

If Price is "everything" ?
                  this site is not meant for you.



WINE & GRAPE JUICE, SOME KASHRUS CONCERNS

GRAPE JUICE COMMONLY HAS CONCENTRATE ADDED TO IT FOR COLOR, BRIX ETC. THE SOURCE IS NOT ALWAY S WHAT EVERYONE WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH E.G. South AMERICA, ARGENTINA . THE HASHGOCHA THERE IS AT TIMES A REAL "BI'DE'EVED".

WINES MADE ALL OVER THE WORLD WITH HETEIREM, E.G. KASHERING, SHOMRE-SHABBOS EMPLOYEES, PASTUREIZING TEMPERATURES ETC.

MUST FOR PESACH THAT WAS REALY PASTUREIZED UNBEKNOW TO THE "TZIBUR".

WINE BARELLS MANUFACTURED IN COMPANIES THAT UTILIZE CHOMETZ "WHEAT-PASTE" TO SEAL THE TOP & BOTTOM OF THE BARRELS, WITH NO HASHGOCHA AT ALL.

WHO'S RUNNING THE KASHRUS AT THE CALIFORNIA OPERATION? Would I rely on him for kashrus? (not realy)

The above is just for starters.

ASK THE RABONIM ABOUT THE WINES YOU USE! YOU MIGHT BE SURPRISED.
YOU DON'T HAVE TOO MANY OPTIONS, AS THERE AREN'T THAT MANY WINE COMPANIES AROUND.

WE CHECKED AND "CARMEL-WINES" HAS NONE OF THE ABOVE CONCERNS.

NOTE: While some wineries may have some of the above issues, others may have more of the issues & concerns-do your research.

How tragic? Rabbi yisroel meir haleivy Steinberg rav hamachshil

http://www.2ndavedeli.com/about/kosher-certification/

COR- Re: "May contain......" declarations

http://cor.ca/view/783/note_regarding_may_contain_declarations.html

NOTE: THIS IS FROM THE LATEST COR NEWS LETTER

May extra virgin olive oil be purchased without certification?
Answer: NO. We recently became aware of reports claiming that much of what is being sold as extra virgin olive oil is actually diluted with lower grade olive oil, sunflower or canola oil. Indeed, an industry expert stated that “75-80 percent of the oil sold in the U.S. does not meet the legal grades for extra-virgin oil.” We are currently conducting a comprehensive study of the matter together with the Canadian Food and Wine Institute at Niagara College. We will share the results as soon as we have conclusive evidence. In the meantime, we can only recommend extra virgin olive oil that carries Passover certification.

HOW RECENT IS RECENTLY, MY NEWSLETTERS AND INFORMATION HAS BEEN WRITING
ABOUT THIS FOR A LONG WHILE,
DOESN'T ANYONE ELSE CAREֱֱֱֱֱ ????????? INSTEAD OF BASHING - WHY NOT TAKE HEED TO WHAT IS BEING SAID ABOUT WHAT YOU PUT IN YOUR MOUTHS - IT TOOK THE COR A LONG TIME TO REALIZE THAT SOMETHING IS WRONG.... ב"ה I FOUND SOMEONE WITH THE CORRECT INFORMATION WHO IS WILLING TO SHARE IT WITH ME AND OTHERS.......

The Wall again

President Trump’s funding request for a border wall will likely wait until later in the year, Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO) announced on Tuesday as a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee. Speaking at a leadership press conference, Blunt noted that House and Senate leadership are close to finalizing a budget for the rest of the 2017 fiscal year, but that they likely would not be able to include Trump’s requested supplemental bill to fund the construction of a Mexico border wall.
“All of the committees, House and Senate leaderships, are working together to tr
y to finalize the rest of the FY17 bill,” Blunt said. “My guess is that comes together better without the supplemental.” He added that the supplemental request would likely be dealt with at a “later time.”

The Kashrus Dilemma


                                          A common Kashrus Dilemma?

The machines were running almost 24/6 at Mandel’s Matzah Factory. In the months before Pesach, tons of matzah were being produced.



One day, the factory mashgiach (kashrus supervisor) received a recall notice regarding a certain shipment of flour, about which there was a serious kashrus question. He checked the code and realized a large number of runs had already been made with the questionable flour.

Immediately upon hearing this, the mashgiach halted the production. “There was a recall notice on the flour we’ve been using,” he notified Mr. Mandel.



The mashgiach then contacted his superior at the supervising kashrus agency. “There is an urgent kashrus question at Mandel’s Matzah Factory,” he said. “There was a recall notice on the flour we’ve been using. We’ve already produced over a ton of matzah from that flour shipment.”



The halachic advisory board convened. After a tense hour of debate, they ruled that the matzos were permitted b’dieved (de facto) based on a combination of lenient opinions, in consideration of the great potential loss (hefsed merubeh). However, they prohibited baking any more matzos with that shipment of flour.

The problem & the solution. It's simple.

 A store / caterer / restaurant, etc. that doesn't carry the best kosher products for the kosher consumer!

E.G.
No Birdsboro Poultry or beef, including their Bais Yosef.
No Solomons beef, including their Bais Yosef.
No Beit Shemesh chaburah Machine matzah.
No Positive or Kosher Garden produce.
No Liebers Potato chips.
No Sacramento tomato juice.
No Gold's products.
No Tofuti products.
No Red Gold tomato products
Etc.










Either ask them to carry those products,


Or Shop where they care about kashrus and do carry it.

Chometz alert: Deja Vu- OK did it again LACTIC ACID

[Ask the OK for the Lactic Acid "Nitra"report re: the chometz issues;]   זה $ וזה $ גורם is the OK's Heter!

ALERT: "Lactic-Acid"  OK-P  should not be used. Serious chometz issue.
OU among others  etc. does not allow it in their products.

OK Poiskim agree that it's a chometz issue. They were over by the OK senior staff.
Any Pesach product with a Heimish Hashgocha, if it has OU you are safe.
Don't use if it has an OK.

Any pesach product without an OU, check with the certifier if they are using the OK Lactic-Acid.

Heimish- Ungers beans infested "Deja vu" . Buy the GOYA brand, they are the cleanest. Quepasa?


Birdsboro poultry is tougher than others because they "don't use hormones, etc"
