im pretty sure the eida requires wingtips to be removed from chicken wings...

Thanks for the info, though I'm asking specifically about Eida beef if the lungs are not treif according to the Beis Yosef.

Do us a favor and read the title of this post, or scroll up to the top of the page.

Thanks for the info about the Eida. Can anyone upload a pic of their hashgacha on meat?
Whoops, sorry. Wasn't this originally in the KSML thread?

Sorry.

There is the badatz is called בית דין צדק לכל מקהלות האשכנזים.They actually have a separate unit for Sefardim (non kashrus)

Here's some info

my point is that the hechsher is catering to the sefardim as well

I acknowledged that already, though I have never heard anything about them having BY meat. Unlike wingtips, the cost difference to the Eida is substantial.

Platinumguy- I don't see those words written on the Badatz hechsher on the products I have in my house. Its probably an old thing they changed.

Free tall machiatto at participating starbux (kosher?)
« Reply #227 on: March 05, 2013, 02:11:40 PM »
I saw on another site a discussion about a free hazelnut or caramel machiatto at starbucks.  There is supposedly a flyer in some stores but people are being successful even in other stores by giving the barista code 350. 
My focus is on the kashrus of these drinks. According to my quick research the caramel machiatto is not kosher but I cannot find any info on the hazelnut, which apparently is a new drink.  Anyone know anything about this?

Unless something clearly has some treif in it, or one of the ingredients doesn't have any sort of hechsher no one can give you a straight answer really. Everyone holds different. Most of the issues come from how they make the drinks and what else has been made on the instruments and where it was washed.

There's gonna be a Kashrus Kennes in the Prima Palace on March 14th. Hosted by Tnuva, admission is free but must be reserved in advance. There will be shiurim given by many prominent Kashrus experts and rabbonim on the different topics regarding milk and dairy products. I will try to attach a pic of the invitation when I get home.

I think it's great. So many ppl slowly erode away their minhagim to be 'accepted'. (eg, the Sephardic rabbanim and the yichud room kerfuffle last year)
