Golden Taste's infested Vegies

The Star-K says that they will not be certifying lettuce for the next few weeks due to heavy infestation.

Yet Golden Taste, Kosher Taste is still distributing lettuce from Star-K facilities.

Hisachdus says the insects that see Hisachdus of Brooklyn on the package, will not remain in the product.

Which brand beans & Barley should I buy?

If you are concerned with infestation?, do not use the Heimish brands.


Goya brand is an excellent choice.

Why was the KAJ / Breur's Kehila the accepted kashrus by all? (as long as Rav Posen was there)



The "secret"?
When Rav Breuer set up the KAJ  Hashgocha, he announced that he is setting it up without any "hidurim or chumras"
only basic kashrus.
The reason? he said was that otherwise you are left with only hidurim and chumras with no kashrus.

No one can accuse the KAJ Kehila's shechita of chasidishe shechita!

Update: Kashrus Alert:Fish sticks, Patties, Surimi, etc

Pollock fish is an infested species of fish and many say it's "ossur"
 Fish sticks, patties, Surimi, etc are made with the Pollock fish.
Some are using "minced-Pollock".
Minced is not ground, therefore it may have whole worms present.
Some even have whole pieces of Pollock fish in the fish sticks.
This is the reason many refrain from using anything with pollock or other infested species.

If it doesn't say "checked for infestation" don't use it.

If it say "free from issues of infestation", may mean that the Certifier is not concerned about infestation in fish, which is not sufficient for one that is concerned about fish infestation. 

Kashrus Alert: Fish Sticks, fish cakes, and SUSHI-.

Bdatz Aida Yerushalem says-


Don't use any pollock fish products-even if ground up or minced.

 Don't use any Surimi in your sushi, which includes the California roll.

BMG's KCL doe$n't care about infe$tation? 
just pay your annual protection money$$$$$
בדרך כלל לא משווק בחנויות שתחת השגחת הבד”צ, לעיתים קיים ייצור מיוחד ללא חשש תולעים בהשגחה צמודה
נגיעות גבוהה של תולעי אניסקיס בבשר הדג
דגים קפואים יבוא ללא עור
סין - ים

Update: The Atrium hall in Monsey

Others have been uncomfortable lately with the Atrium..

They allow many caterers with questionable kashrus standards, or with no hashgocha at the affair per se.

Other Hashgochas may be requiring koshering, prior to use.

Update: Alert: Aisle 9 Lakewood- KASHRUS ALERT

RE: Their pre-checked vegetables... AND PREPARED FOODS-should not be used. They are clue-less in infestation.

Rabbi Shmuel Spiegel, Shlita et al Posted a sign that one should must re-check (by an expert) the Aisle-9 pre-checked vegetables. 
[Therefore do NOT eat any of their checked vegies]

Therefore "ALL OF THEIR PREPARED FOODS SHOULD NOT BE eaten AS ONE CAN'T RE-CHECK THE VEGIES"

Yeshivish hats $55.00

https://www.yeshivishhats.com/

Everyone knows that a new hat is a major expense. Even the “affordable” hats are running at $120.00 

Could anyone do something to lower the prices? Yes, and they did.

A melamed who lives in Rochester, N.Y. has launched a new company selling hats for only $55.00.  The Yeshivish Hat Company began selling online in January to B’nai Torah across the United States and Canada. Orders have poured in from Brooklyn, Monsey, Lakewood, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, Detroit, Baltimore and Toronto.

Dovid Roness, the company’s owner, noticed a need for a more affordable hat, and set out to meet it. “How can a family with 4 sons afford a shabbos and weekday hat for 5 people?” asks Roness “That’s 10 hats! That’s between 1,500 – 3,000 dollars!” Many people wear old hats for weekdays which really aren’t so respectable. A brand new affordable hat is a great alternative, especially for davening.

By reexamining every step of the hat industry, from design/manufacturing to the packaging, Yeshivish has come up with an affordable, stylish, quality hat. The newly designed website is a pleasure to navigate and will give you a real feel for what the Yeshivish Hat Company is about.
