Why would a product that normally bears the OU symbol not bear one?
There are a variety of reasons why a product may sometimes appear with an OU and sometimes without. Here are a few of those possibilities:
- Printing error
- Different sizes of the same product are made on different production lines or at facilities that are not certified.
- The product without the OU symbol is manufactured in a non-certified plant.
- The product without the OU is an old batch that was manufactured prior to OU supervision.
Since it is not possible to know why an OU symbol is absent just by looking at the package, consumers are encouraged to contact our Kashrus hotline at (212) 613-8241 for individual product clarification.
