ONLINE SHOPPING REMINDER: When shopping online for grocery delivery or curbside pickup, always check the actual label on each item when the order is received. This is essential because many online descriptions or pictures give inaccurate or outdated information regarding the product’s Kosher status. In addition, the store may substitute non-Kosher or non-approved products if the requested item is not available.
Some recent examples:
• Season Kipper Snacks Herring Fillets is pictured on Amazon with an OU, but the actual product delivered did not bear an OU. (Due to Covid-19 related challenges, it was produced as non-Kosher and the OU was removed.)
• Edward & Sons Organic Mashed Potatoes is pictured on Kroger’s website with a Heart-K symbol (a division of OK Kosher), but the actual product does not bear that symbol.
• Great Value [Walmart] Whole Wheat pasta (Spaghetti, Linguine, Penne, etc.) is pictured online with an OU symbol, but the actual product currently does not bear an OU.
Good Shabbos & Chag Sameach!
