Star-K: Starbucks ends expanded Kosher information program

From the Star-K: Please be advised that Starbucks corporation has decided to end the expanded Star-k Kosher information program.

Consumers are advised that effective immediately the Star-k can no longer vouch for the Kashrus of items previously listed that do not bear a reliable Kosher symbol.

This includes frappuccinos and all flavored drinks.

Unflavored coffee recommendations remain the same as before.

In addition, the Kosher-friendly store program is no longer under our auspices.

Our webpage has been updated to reflect these changes.

Consumers who would like to see this program reinstated should contact Starbucks directly.

Customers must confirm Kashrus of additives to coffee by themselves by checking for reliable kosher symbols.
