How tragic? Rabbi yisroel meir haleivy Steinberg rav hamachshil

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 Kashrus Dilemma- For Passaic people "we can say Bi'dieved" etc


                                          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"
