Mrs. Adler's Hechsher Removed Due to Immodest Dress on Label
LAKEWOOD, NEW JERSEY — [TheKnish.com] In keeping with recent tightening of Kashrus standards, The Unorthodox Union has decided to remove their endorsement of Mrs. Adler's products due to her immodest clothing.
In a press release, The Unorthodox Union states that "Mrs. Adler, although a very nice lady, has her hair uncovered, which is unacceptable in Orthodox circles. Also, she has a dangerous plunging neckline, which can be very distracting at the Shabbos table and could lead to levity of mind and conversations between men and women, heaven forbid."
The statement goes on to say that "Even Aunt Jemima has her hair respectfully covered. Also, Mrs. Butterworth wears a very respectful long skirt. They should be commended and Mrs. Adler should emulate their style before we consider re-granting our Hechsher."
Mrs. Adler could not be reached for comment, as she was putting on a sheitel and donning a modest blouse so that she could take new pictures in an effort to be certified kosher again.
