A new 7-11 store opened in Lakewood yesterday, but R’ Yudel Shain tells TLS the community should be aware of several Kashrus issues involving their ‘Kosher’ products. The following is the contents of an email sent from R’ Shain: 1-They have Cholov Akum milk and Cholov Yisroel “pride of the farm”. Once the container is opened, there is no Choisim- Shulchan Oruch Yoreh Dayah 118 states milk needs a Choisim. If they would use the Golden flow single serve it may be fine.
2-The coffee utensils, are they washed with other non kosher items or non kosher brushes, etc?
3- The soda from the fountain, one must be certain that it’s a syrup that has an acceptable Hashgocha, so, every time you must check the syrup container-A Goy is not Nehman.
4- Slurpee is a bigger problem, it’s a finished item & you can’t know what they have used for the various flavors.
5- Microwave, you have an issue of Treif & Bishul Akum. Being practical, you can’t Kasher it. You need Ainoi Ben Yomoi, plastic-Reb Moshe says is not Kasherable (Minchas Yitzchok says it can), etc unless you put it in double wrapped and none of the wrapping bursts-you need 2 wrappers. TLS.
