KOSHER TODAY UPDATE:

by Menachem Lubinsky, Editor in Chief

NEW YORK -- A story in KosherToday (June 11th) that Empire Kosher is planning to add a major kosher certifier to all of its poultry productions in its Mifflintown PA plant was clarified by Rabbi Aaron Teitelbaum, the Nierbarter Rav. The rabbi told Kosher Today that he was given authority to make some changes at the plant to facilitate his certification of Meal Mart – Alle poultry and chickens but that “my hashgacha on chicken and turkey is only on the Alle-Meal Mart brand.” Empire products are certified by the Orthodox Union and K’hal Adas Jeshurun.
