It has come to our attention that the new 7-Eleven on Reisterstown Road at Naylors Lane next to Office Depot has purchased a hotdog maker and is grilling hot dogs under the 7-Eleven supervision.
We were informed that last Friday many people purchased hotdogs assuming they are permitted according to our Torah.
We wish to inform the public that we cannot recommend a non-Jewish kosher supervision or the kosher supervision given by an entity or individual who does not eat kosher themselves.

June 15, 2011 GFS (Gordon Food Service) brand institutional-size Artichoke Quarters was labeled in error with a Star-K. The Star-K does not certify Artichoke Quarters.
Corrective action has been taken. Revised labels bear the correct certification - a six-pointed star in a circle. This is the Kosher Supervision symbol of the Rabbinate of Madrid (symbol below).
