  • Keystone-K Information: OU ALERT: Arnold Bread
    The major Kashrus agencies do not certify bread that contains milk. Most Arnold Breads now contain milk and will not be certified any longer by the OU. Please make sure that no dairy products are listed in the ingredients before purchasing Arnold Bread. As of this time Arnold's Italian Bread is still OU Parve. If the community would like Arnold to continue to produce Parve breads it is advisable to call the bakery at 800-984-0989 and express how important this is to the kosher consumer. Please use our web-site for up to date Kashrus information.
