TUMS CHEWY DELIGHTS CORRECTION: The 2/2/23 KosherGram stated that this product is marked as Star-D Dairy. Actually, it bears a Diamond-K-D Dairy symbol, and is Kosher dairy.
ICEBERG LETTUCE SALAD and COLESLAW produced by DOLE under the DOLE brand name and under various private labels [store brands] normally bear the OK symbol, except when there is an issue of infestation. These labels include KROGER Brand, LITTLE SALAD BAR [Aldi], MARKETSIDE [Walmart] and others.
Currently, due to a printing problem, these products do not bear the OK symbol on some bags, and stores have a mixture of some bags with the OK symbol and some without. To determine whether a particular bag produced by Dole without the OK symbol is in fact OK approved, and does not have an infestation issue, consumers can send a picture of the product, plus a close-up of the date and lot number, to firstname.lastname@example.org , and we will forward the information to the OK office for their determination.
- Please note that the above list of private labels refers to product produced for them by Dole. However, these labels are sometimes also produced by different companies that are not OK certified. Product produced by Dole can be identified by the lot code under the date. The code will begin with the letter B, N, W or Y, followed by 5 numbers, followed by the letter A, B or C. (Occasionally there may be a 6th number, instead of the A, B or C.)
- Many of the KROGER Brand CLASSIC GARDEN and KROGER Brand SHREDDED ICEBERG bags in the Detroit area currently (and possibly in other areas) are not produced by Dole and do not bear an OK symbol.
