Consumer Alert:

  • Buyer Beware:  Letters of certification are often legitimately provided by manufacturers to their retail customers to prove that the product they wish to sell is kosher-certified.  Unfortunately, some non-kosher retail establishments re-post these letters in their stores to misleadingly suggest that the retail store, or a product sold there, is also kosher-certified.  As stated in the ORB's letter, "[this letter] does not certify that the ORB supervises any outlets or stores in which these products may be sold."

Without appropriate kosher supervision, there is no assurance that the product being sold is in fact kosher and meets acceptable community standards.  The ORB recommends that consumers purchase over-the-counter prepared foods only from reliably-certified retailers.
