7 Sivan 5774
June 5, 2014
The following information was taken from the Chief Rabbinate Kashrus Enforcement Unit update number 018/5774, dated today.
The same product when imported by the Ackerman Company is reliably kosher and the label states clearly the item is approved by the Chief Rabbinate of Israel.
Regarding alcoholic beverages, there are often issues pertaining to their kashrus including ‘Nesach’ and concerns regarding the origin of ingredients. At times a large company will allocate special lines for kosher runs and therefore one should not rely on the kashrus of a product without the Chief Rabbinate’s approval, even a product that is known.
