SayIt Ain't So

.

Duncan Hines (Orthodox Union (OU)) will now be making all their cake mix products with dairy ingredents .Duncan Hines was owned by Procter and Gamble formany years but when it experienced difficulty it was sold to Pinnacle Foods, based in Cherry Hill, NJ, which also acquired such well-known kosher brands as Lender's Bagels. Industry sources say that Duncan Hines decided to add the dairy to improve the quality of product. The decision by Duncan Hines comes at a time when there is growing demand for pareve products by kosher consumers and by many lactose intolerant/allergic people. Some industry sources said the company would not go through with the change, but if it does, a "D" will be added to the OU indicating that dairy ingredients are being used.

    SAVE THE PAREVE STATUS

    Duncan Hines has announced that they will be making all their cake mixes
    dairy (until now they were all parve). This would remove from the market
    the last major brand of cake mixes that Jews who keep kosher can use with a
    meat meal. Oy! But you can help!!!!!! (Seriously!). When Nabisco made a
    similar announced Stella Doro Cookies (a favorite Shabbat
    dinner dessert in many homes) they were flooded with requests not to change
    and
    it WORKED - they switched the cookies back to Parve.

    So, please, even if you do not keep kosher (this is important for those
    of us who are lactose intolerant too!), please read the article below and
    then visit Pinnacle Foods to let them know you appreciate Duncan Hines being
    dairy free and oppose any change to make its OU certified baked goods
    dairy.
    You can file a concern at www.duncanhines.com in the "about us"section
    under the "contact us" option. Just fill out the form and click
    submit.

    And pass it on!!!

    Thanks!
