    OK Stands Behind Tropicana Juices

    OK Kosher stands behind the kosher status of all Tropicana juices bearing the OK symbol. In response to recent reports relating to Tropicana juices, the OK tested the juices and also had them tested by an independent and knowledgeable posek, and all agreed that there are no halachic kashrus issues ● Details

    Last week, Rabbi Yair Hoffman penned a long article stating that Tropicana Juices contain “scale insects”:

    “The testing revealed that each cup of Tropicana Pure Premium had on average of between three and four scale bug parts in the juice that are visible to the naked eye on a light box. This was verified through the use of a USB microscope. In experiments conducted this week, about 1 in 20 cups actually revealed a fully intact scale bug. This is after examining four containers purchased in three locations, but admittedly within one week of each other.”

     

    Today, the OK Kashrus organization, which provides the Hechsher for Tropicana, has released the following statement:

    OK Kosher stands behind the kosher status of all Tropicana juices bearing the OK symbol. In response to recent reports relating to Tropicana juices, the OK tested the juices and also had them tested by an independent and knowledgeable posek, and all agreed that there are no halachic kashrus issues.

    In addition an independent laboratory tested the juices and found no traces of insects.

    As always, consumers can rest assured that any product bearing the OK symbol is kosher without compromise.
