Your headline is misleading

You incorrectly state that the pareve flavors contain non Cholov Yisroel powder. 100% WRONG. The graphic designer forgot/never was told that they needed a pareve and dairy Hebrew label, depending on the flavor. The OU and OU-D symbols are correct as printed. As for bishul yisroel, pringles are made from potato flake, not fresh cut/fried potatoes. Look in the English Birkas Hanenin from Kehot, it is not so clear that “Lubavitch holds the potatoes are considered ‘chashuv'” when made into potato flake. Ask your Rav what to do as opposed to a post on a website.

it is not so clear… they are made from RECONSTITUTED potato – they are hardly CHOSHUV to make them OLEH AL SHULCHAN MALOCHIM – nonetheless it’s a machlokes – so don’t be so sure… and to #17 – same thing! Since when is potato flour oleh al shulchan malochim

bishul Yisroel

It’s not bishul Yisroel!!!
It’s not even made with potatoes, It’s made with potato flower. It needs to be bishul Yisroel. Bishul Yisroel is much more serious then Pas Yisoel and Chalav Yisroel

BUT WHAT ABOUT BISHUL YISRAEL???

Pringles, like all ou potato chips – are not bishul yisrael. Lubavitch holds that potatoes are considered “chashuv” and need to bishul yisrael (the fire to cook them has to be ignited by a Jew).
I called ou a while ago and a rabbi told me that they do not believe potatoe chips need this.
I have heard lectures from prominent Chabad rabbonim on the impotance of upholding BISHUL an PAS yhisrael – together with oldtime (and maybe new time) stories of what happened when something went wrong in that area of keeping kashrus,.

The containers says it was produced in ohio, yet it seems this is saying the pringels are from Israel and that why there is a hebrew hechsher, well ho does that work? and if it was a mistake how can there be some pringels that say parve in hebrew?

There is so much garbage in pringles, that you’re probably better off without them anyway.

Im not getting it?
November 8, 2009 4:54 am

doesnt it say that the text saying that thier is dairy ingredients is a mistake and really it is parve?
are they allowed to not include such an ingredient?
is it really milchig?

Old news

It’s been like this for at least half a year. And if I remember correctly it’s a second hechsher on the pringles that writes it. At the time I noticed it I tried finding out why there’s such a difference between the hechsheiim.

pringles made in america are ou pareve,eventhough i dont think there is a issue with the israeli product. urchase the american version which has no doubt.

Still suspicious....
November 8, 2009 3:26 am

I still would not eat them, regardless of what the OU said.
Could be there is some dairy ingredient that the OU missed.

Unless they had that typeset for Eretz Yisroel for the DAIRY flavors. Sorry brainfreeze.

This has been printed on Pringles since at least the summer. I also called the OU and they said it is a printing error, which may be plausible because Pringles in America do not routinely (if ever) have any Hebrew hechsher notes. However, the question is, how would that printing error have ever made it on the can? If there was no milk powder in the products, Pringles would never have had that typeset to even mistakenly put on their product, even for Eretz Yisroel.

Thanx
November 8, 2009 3:17 am

Thank you for posting this article.
I almost bought them myself when I noticed the hebrew and was very suspicious. (I was in a gaz station….)
So now people will know.

franks hot sauce!

The OU claims that it is a mistake
November 8, 2009 2:47 am

The major problem with prinfting specific hechsherim on labels is that when there is a mistake as such, it is very difficult to correct (sometimes in the millions) many ackages that have that error. apparently that is what happened here.

pareve
November 8, 2009 2:14 am

I spoke to the ou 2 month ago,they told me its a simple printing mistake.It is pareve.

which is it?
November 8, 2009 1:46 am

Is it pareve or is it dairy? I am confused.

hmmm
November 8, 2009 1:12 am

thats why we dont eat them all together!

good morning
