I blogged recently about the wave of food-labeling related suits. In it I mentioned that "kosher" labeling would be one of the next battlegrounds. Well, it appears that the issue is not only ripe but ready to be litigated here in our own back yard.
I received information that QFC is selling yogurt it claims to be kosher (but that really isn’t). Here are the specifics:
Blended (Rasberry, Grade A low fat)
Product No. 1111045597.
It is QFC’s store brand with QFC’s logo on it. It’s available at QFC’s Broadway location. It is distributed by Inter-American Products. It has a blue letter "K" on the front of the container at the area between the percentage of milkfat and the weight.
Gelatin is listed as one of the ingredients. The gelatin is derived from beef. According to Inter-American’s own records, the yogurt is not kosher.
I would be very interested to speak with people who purchased the yogurt because it was supposedly kosher.
