Trader Joe's baked goods no longer kosher

I was in Trader Joe's today and any of the baked goods that have had the KVH in the past no longer did!

    That's kind of a misleading headline, given that TJs has multiple vendors and even varies vendors by location, as I understand it. Where are you located and which items are affected at your location?

      Trader Joe frequently changes suppliers, and as a result will sometimes have hashgocho and sometimes not. Because of some operational considerations, they change more frequently than supermarket brands,

      Was at TJ's today and sadly almost all of the premade cakes/pies are now NOT Kosher. I even asked a store employee about it. She called someone and foudn out the distributor was changed:( She was unaware of the change until we spoke. We did see one cake ( A ricotta based one) the hasd a star d on the label, but that was it:( Bummer.

        Which Trader Joe's? As DeisCane mentioned, TJ sources a lot from local suppliers. What a TJ in LA does will have minimal impact on what a TJ in Boston or NY does.

          TJ's in Ardmore PA. this was ONLY the cake/pie table. As far as I know the bread that was kosher is still under supervision. I know some of the bread is locally produced, infact the baklery is closer to me than this store and I belive it is still under supervision.

              The ricotta cake looks good but my husband especially is very disapointed at the others no longer being ceritfied. :(
