Morningstar...a non kosher transition?

I just came across this:
"following kashrus advisory is from the OK on December 13 2010. Please be advised that Morningstar Farms Chik'n Strips are no longer being produced as Kosher. The item will no longer bear an OK symbol on the package. Items seen in the store with an OK can still be used. "
(http://www.kashrut.com/Alerts/?alert=...

)

Any word out there if they're going to switch hashgachot or why this might be going unkosher? Man, our veggie fajitas were the best with these...any other good replacements out there?

  1. Aaaargh! That is terrible news for my Chinese Chickenless Salad. I'll have to start experimenting with the White Wave chicken style seitan. The family likes it in stir fry dishes.

      Never heard of it. I just sent them an e-mail asking where to buy it.

      1. re: SoCal Mother

        I buy it at Whole Foods or Mothers Market.

          The Tofurky brand marinated tempeh flavors are pretty good too, but the texture is not as smooth. Yves makes imitation chicken strips that I use to make wonton.

            Thanks! I need to go to Whole Foods this week anyway to get toasted sesame seeds if it EVER stops raining.

            Wegman's in NJ has it White Wave products..

        2. Time to start writing letters to Morningstar!!

          It worked when Duncan Hines started to make their cakes dairy even though it didn't work when Dannon trefed up their fruit yogurts.

          1. makes ya wonder what's going on in the corporate office. a few years back, they dumped the corndogs. (ostensibly due to supplier problems)

            1. I stopped using them when I realized everything had milk in it. I use the yves chicken strips and "ground beef" they are awesome and parve.

                I think a letter writing campaign is definitely in order. I just sent an email.

              2. I'm particularly unhappy because the Morningstar products are much less expensive (especially if I get them at Target) than the other companies' products. Yves is delicious but $$$.
