The product is sold in Israel with a sticker placed by the importer that contains an unauthorized OU symbol. This product is not certified by the OU and the sticker did not originate from the Hershey Chocolate Company.
JKN ADDS: As I tell the tzibur in my lectures, one must never buy a product with an import label unless the kashrus symbol is visible on the original factory wrapper or packaging. This policy avoids falling victim as in this case.
If one views the photos one will see that the OU appears on the import label only. We must not assume there is a valid hechsher under the label.
