Rabbanut Removing Dr. Pepper From the Shelves

This weeks Rabbanut kashrut update is sponsored by me! Sort of.

Here is [part of] this weeks update that was sent out today..

If you remember, I was the one who contacted the KLBD and asked them about the appearance of the KLBD logo on the Dr. Pepper cans. As a result of my communication with them, the KLBD rep told me they contacted the Rabbanut to inform them of the fraud.

Whether the Dr. Pepper is actually kosher or not, covered by their "authorization" of the Dr. Pepper manufactured in the UK, the logo was used fraudulently, and the Rabbanut hechsher based on that was therefore also based on fraud.

The Rabbanut is now pulling Dr. Pepper with the KLBD logo off the shelves of stores (sorry). The only other cans I have seen recently bear the Triangle K hechsher.


  1. Yikes. I had no idea that blatantly false labeling was so prevalent.

  2. Sodastream diet dr. pete is a worthy substitute

  3. Diet Dr. Pete is awesome. Too bad we can't actually buy the syrup here anymore. They have been out of stock since APRIL!!

  4. Dr Pepper from the UK is approved by the London Beit Din. http://www.kosher.org.uk/sites/default/files/2015%20KNG%20Single%20Pages_2.pdf
