Kosher alert:Whoops, here's another one

You know, we really didn't intend to become all about kosher alerts. Really. And we only post those that we think affect Vancouver. And are important.

Like the following:

The following kashrus alert is from the Kashruth Council of Canada on August 15, 2006.

The Kashruth Council of Canada (COR) wishes to advise that Natures's Blend Cheddar Cheese Bagels were labeled with an unauthorized COR 153. THIS PRODUCT IS NOT KOSHER CERTIFIED. Please note that COR 153 is presently inactive and should not appear on any products.

Sorry if you got all excited about cheddar cheese bagels being available at a regular ol' store.


Kosher alert:Not all Starbucks products are created equal. Or by Starbucks.

The following kashrus alert is from the Chicago Rabbinical Council on August 9, 2006 and confirmed by Pepsi*.

Unlike other varieties of Starbucks bottled drinks, the Frappuccino Strawberries & Crème in the 9.5oz bottle is NOT certified kosher.

* Yep. Bottled Frappuccinos are manufactured by Pepsi. Disillusion lives on.
