Do you drink "Simply Orange" orange juice? I have for a very long time, because it is really the best-tasting orange juice I have ever enjoyed with breakfast--or any time my potassium or blood sugar needs a lift.
Up to a few months ago, when you went to remove the tamper-evident seal across the cap and bottle, the seal read "Kosher for Passover". Now it simply reads "Fresh Taste Guaranteed".
Anti-Semitism, or is the manufacturer making darn sure they don't offend muslims?
Perhaps the company changed its processing and no longer meets the requirements for kosher labeling?
Passover has passed for the year. Simple answer.
Probably your store changed distributors. I’ve never seen them say Kosher for Passover.
The Kosher for Passover label only gets put on things around Passover . Other times of the year they are labeled differently . I am drinking a Simply Lemonade and it has the kosher certification on the back label . It is the small u with the circle around it :)
So.. anything not “Kosher” is anti-Semitic?
I purchase whatever is on sale (Simply Orange, Florida’s Natural, Tropicana). I’ve never seen the “Passover” seal on any national brand of Orange Juice.
Simply Orange is a product of the Coca Cola Company. It is a highly engineered product. Here’s a link to an article discussing how it is manufactured:
The best part of the orange is the white material of the second skin layer....contains lots of bioflavonoids.
How many national brands specify their appropriateness for particular religious observance? Not to denigrate your question — continue to observe bias wherever you see it— but did you see Passover labeling on any other product you bought that day? Milk? Cheese? Butter? Bread? Did you consider it anti-Semitic if your didn’t?
I’m trying to imagine being the CEO of any food company. What is the benefit/cost to me to track and seasonally publish the religions my product is appropriate for? Is that not the job of the religion?

I love Simply Lemonade. Nearest thing to homemade out there
Don't ever, ever buy "from concentrate" juice. It is heat-pasteurized and the nutrients are filtered out.
Take a deep breath.
The kosher marking is on the bottle. Learn to identify it IF you are that concerned about things being kosher
Since Passover was 4 months ago, I might question the freshness of a product with such a label. Just good marketing to remove it when no longer timely. I would probably “pass over” a box of chocolates marked “fresh for Valentine’s Day” also. No ill intent here. Just good business.

I am not Jewish and I do not keep Kosher but I do look for Kosher labels on a lot of products . My entire family has dairy food allergies ,some of those labels are a tremendous blessing to me because they let me know the product does not contain hidden dairy.(there are many people like me)
What would make orange juice not kosher?
The kosher and halal labels are nothing but money making scams by the groups that sell the “rights” to use those labels. It is a shakedown racket.
