are thought to be more

products."
There are more than 60
kosher certifications now is
use, said Abba Cohen, direc-
tor of Agudath Israel's
Washington office.
"Most of these symbols ap-
pear without any specific
reference on the product
label or package as to the
identity, background or
qualifications of the certify-
ing authority," Mr. Cohen
said.
"With more and more pro-
ducts bearing more and
more symbols, the kosher
field has become ripe for
error, confusion and even
fraud."
The bill, known as the
Public Disclosure of Re-
ligious Dietary Certification

"With more and
more products
bearing more and
more symbols, the
kosher field has
become ripe for

Agudath Israel

Act, would require manufac-
turers of products labeled as
kosher and shipped across
state lines to file certain in-
formation with the Food and
Drug Administration.
This would include the
name and address of the
kosher certifying authority,
a letter of authenticity from
the authority and a facsimile
of the product's symbol. If
the certification is
withdrawn, the manufac-
turer must notify the FDA
within 15 days.
Consumers who have any
questions about a product
would then be able to check
with the FDA.
None of the symbols used
on kosher products are now
subject to FDA enforcement,
Mr. Solarz said. Since kosher
products usually cost more,
the lack of federal enforce-
ment has "opened the door
to numerous and uncons-
cionable cases of fraud," Mr.
Solarz said.
He stressed that under his
legislation, the FDA would
not make any religious de-
termination on either the
certifying authority or the
product.
