Polly-O string cheese back on shelves?

Wondering if anyone has seen (OU certified) Polly-O string cheese back on their supermarket shelves? I haven't seen it since they recalled them! (Am I looking in the wrong (UWS) supermarkets? lol!)

  1. Wow, I didn't know they were recalled. That explains why I couldn't find them anywhere!

    1. The dairy manager at my supermarket told me it wouldn't be until March, but he may just have been speculating.

      1. Nope. Only one of the supermarkets I've seen have any polly-o and that was KD. Since the supermarket in question is the Associated on 96th, goodness knows how old they are.

          All Polly-O string cheese is under if the OU, even if it still has the KD on it. They are still working through the old packaging.

            I still dont see the OU in Costco in Lawrence, only the KD, is their stock so old?

              Or they have a large surplus of old packaging to work with. My father-in-law spent a shabbos at one of the mashgichim of the Polly-O factory near Rochester. He was told that everything that comes out of that factory is under the OU, even if the label hasn't been updated yet.

                The string cheeses at that location previously had an OUD on it, which makes me wonder.

                  It is my understanding that all of Polly-O's string cheese is manufactured at that one factory in Campbell, NY.

        2. They were recalled? Still seeing them in Houston, TX.

            Yes, due to possible spoilage before the use by date.

            Nowhere to be found in Brooklyn

          2. have been looking, no success yet
