Consumers who have questions or concerns about this issue can contact GE directly at 1-800-626-2005.



Kadosh Kosher Wagyu Brand Beef
November 22, 2021

It has come to our attention that a store in South Florida has been selling STAR-K certified and sealed Kadosh Kosher Wagyu Brand Beef in retail packages while also displaying the Kadosh name on other packages of meat that don't bear a STAR-K. Consumers are advised to be aware that meat items without STAR-K seals are not certified by STAR-K.
 
In order to protect Kosher consumers from confusion, STAR-K is discontinuing future certification of all Kadosh branded meats. For more information, please contact STAR-K at [email protected]

Products not certified include broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, collard greens, turnip greens, Brussels sprouts, and all mixes that include any of these items.

Kitchen Aid French Door Refrigerators
October 12, 2021

It has come to our attention that in certain models of STAR-K Sabbath Mode-certified Kitchen Aid French Door refrigerators - among them KRFC302ESS and KRSC503ESS​ - the interior lights continue to be operational even in Sabbath Mode.

To determine if your model has this issue, do the following:

1. Set the Sabbath Mode.
2. Keeping the left door and freezer drawer closed, open the right door.
a. If there is no light displaying, your unit is fine.
​ b. If you see a light, however dim, you will need to tape down both refrigerator switches and the freezer switch before Shabbos and Yom Tov. Be sure to remove the tape after Shabbos/Yom Tov.

Please contact KitchenAid at 1-800-422-1230 to report the issue and schedule service.
