OU temporarily removed from some products
Kosher Advisory
Issue
Due to COVID-19, some companies are facing challenges producing OU certified products because of the inability to meet certain requirements. As a result, the OU may be temporarily removed from packaging of these products.

Rest assured that the OU will not appear on any products which do not meet OU standards.

Consumers should NOT rely on their familiarity of brands or products without verifying the presence of a kosher symbol. This is always true when purchasing food products online, as the product displayed or description may have a kosher claim, but the product received may not have a kosher symbol or be kosher certified.
