Consumers Confusing Kosher & Non Kosher Italian Ices At Shoprite

lindysNOTICE: It has been brought to the attention of TLS, that consumers shopping at Shoprite have been picking up the non-kosher Italian Ices Lindys (pictured), confusing them with the Kosher Italian ices Luigis, which share the same showcase. The showcase, located near the Kosher Experience section, is giving some shoppers the impression that all ices in the showcase are Kosher.

The Lindys does not carry any Hechsher, and the Louigis carries an OU. (TLS-63)

  1. They really shouldn’t have them together and not in front of Kosher Experience either. But, one must always read the labels, even on a brand that has always been kosher, sometimes things change.

  2. what the heck?! hello? it’s the consumer’s responsibility to check if the product is kosher. it’s not shoprite’s fault. people must always check every surface of the item to make sure it’s kosher before purchasing. this is the same for any item you buy unless if you always buy it and know that it’s still kosher.

  3. According to the Lindys website, they are working on kosher certification. They stated that they wanted it done by the end of 2010.For all you know,it could be kosher already but they havent printed new boxes yet

  4. First of all it says not kosher on the sign. It say on the door of shop rite we sell kosher aNd none kosher it is the customer responsibly to check don’t blame shop rite the frozen dept has nothing to do with the kosher dept .

  5. “what makes it not kosher? a lacke of hechsher printed on the packlage does not mean it is not koshher.”
    How about treif food colorings and flavoring agents? Anyway, wherever you shop, it makes sense to check for supervision and ingredients to make sure you aren’t eating treif, milchig when you are fleishig or allergens that you or your family/guests are sensitive to.

  6. Stop grouching everybody. TLS hasn’t blamed anyone. They notified us that the Italian Ices look the same and are (sometimes)in the same showcase and therefore check for a hechsher.
    If you don’t want to check for a hechsher, and you want to say it’s ok, that’s your deal. But don’t delude yourself that if it’s treif you’ll see it on the label. You won’t.
    Do you know why the FDA made allergen warnings mandatory? Because not everything is always listed in the ingredients, and alot of people are worried about allergies. Big business these days as so many people prey on other people’s worries. . By us Yidden, those who trust, Kashrus has always been our business. We don’t prey, we pray.
