Ottimo Cafe Is Back Under KCL Hashgacha Following Brief Pause

Ottimo Cafe in Howell, which has long been under the hashgacha of the KCL, lost its certification last week over a hashkafic – not kashrus – disagreement.

KCL issued a letter stating that Ottimo is no longer under their hashgacha. However, Ottimo is now back under the KCL following discussions between Ottimo’s management and the KCL.

  1. Glad to see that Lakewood alerts stuck themselves into the middle of this and decided what the issue was, and whether it was a halachic issue or not. Maybe you guys should try to stick to what you do, not too well I might add, rather than sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong.

  2. What is wrong? A hashgacha made it clear that they require establishments to refuse unseemly activties. I congratulate KCL on showing their sense of responsibility by pulling tge hashgacha, and showing their concern not to destroy an innocent man’s business by reinstating it.
