The Krispy Kreme Pop-Up located at 295 Ponce de Leon Ave is not under AKC supervision.

Morning Fresh Farms Frozen Vegetables bear an unauthorized STAR-K symbol. Products not certified include broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, collard greens, turnip greens, Brussels sprouts, and all mixes that include any of these items. These products have not been checked for tolaim (insect infestation). Breaded okra is also not certified.

BELL PEPPERS FROM ISRAEL (red, yellow, and orange) are appearing in stores like Kroger, and should not be purchased due to Shemitah restrictions. (If already purchased, consult your Rav.) Carefully check the fine print on the package, or the sticker on peppers sold loose, for the country of origin. Often the same brand has some peppers from Israel and some from other locations, so each individual package or pepper should be checked.
Whenever buying produce, one should be careful to check the sticker, bag label or original case for the country of origin, due to issues of Shemitah, or of Terumos and Maaseros if it is not Shemitah product. Some additional examples of Israeli produce commonly found in the U.S. include tomatoes, carrots, citrus fruit (oranges, grapefruit, lemons, mandarins, clementines and pomelos), persimmons (“Sharon Fruit”), pomegranates, mangos, dates, dill, and parsley.

Various Florajen Probiotics products bear an unauthorized OK Kosher symbol. This company and their products are not certified by the OK.

Bovine Collagen Powder of Ambrosia Foods Inc bears an unauthorized OK Kosher symbol on the packaging. This product is NOT certified by the OK.
