Junior's Cheesecake Loses It's Supervision....

To be certain, I don't believe I ever had the honor of trying the famous Junior's Most Fabulous Cheesecake. They have however lost their kosher supervision label from the OU. The reason for the Orthodox Union pulling their supervision:They are owned by Jews and they baked a batch of cheesecake over Passover.

The whole thing was a mistake,” Junior’s co-owner Alan Rosen told The Brooklyn Paper. “One of our customers ran out of cheesecake, so our shop foreman made some. I didn’t know about it at the time, and it’s a violation. We know we’re not supposed to bake during Passover, but what can I say? The company said it would search for Kosher certification from another kosher supervision company. Can you say Chof-K?

No it just ryhmes :)and it is another possibility. Although I guess I could have gone with can you say triangle-k. That might work too...

Isn't it odd that OU had no issues pulling the hasgacha from a world renown and hugely successful and wealthy establishment that sells its cheesecakes in the tens of thousands nationally on QVC, but when it comes to Le Marais, a simple NY area restaurant among many others in its class, people wish to believe that the OU would have a financial interest not to withdraw its certification?

Maybe this ought to demonstrate the BS level that people spew on this matter and see that maybe the OU is not wrong in the case of Le Marais?

Well certainly with a organization as large as the OU, losing Le Marais wouldn't even make a scratch to their finances.
