Eida Clarification Regarding Donuts

28 Kislev 5774
December 1, 2013
Supermarkets and stores at times sell donuts that originated in bakeries under the supervision of Badatz Eida Chareidit. Some of these stores defrost the donuts and reheat them in the store without Eida kashrus supervision.

The badatz only assumes responsibility for the donuts if they are sold in a store under its supervision or sold in sealed boxes with appropriate labeling.

The Eida Chareidit is not responsible for donuts sold loose in stores that are not under its hashgacha.

    That must be a Photoshopped pic of a sufganiyah. None actually exist with so much jelly in them!

    Even for Eida Hecsher – you must make sure that your doughnut is not Chalavi (Milichig) – there are Bakeries that are not Makpid to put up signs with that important information! I don’t know why Mehadrin Hechsherim do not enforce this issue.

    Erev Shabbat Kodesh – Parshat Vayigash

    If one is scrupulous with his/her kashrut then it should be an obligation one should take on that they only purchase from stores, bakeries that are likewise following these same guidelines. In Berman’s Bakery, there was a table set up on the “PARVE” side of the room where “only” parve donuts were sold and prepackaged. On the dairy side, there were chalavi (dairy) donuts sold. On the 3 donuts (preboxed) there was no designation showing that they were parve but then again it was in the parve area where they in particular were being sold.

    I’m hoping that in your own kitchen ►Happy Chanukah◄ that all of your silverware / utensil drawers are marked with the appropriate designation of them being either dairy, meat or parve. In my house, I personally do as my chef’s knives, I have them etched on the upper part of the actual blade.
