Guide to chodosh 5776 released for those makpid on Yoshon

The prelimanary guide to chodosh for the year 5776/ 2015 has been released HERE
Latest Yoshon update as of September 10, 2015
The oats used in General Mills cereals has been Chodosh from most factories since the packaging date of Aug 3. (There is one factory that is later, Aug 15. We will issue a new bulletin when we find out the factory code for this factory.) This means that all Cheerios and other General Mills cereals that contain oats will have a Chodosh "Best if used by" date on the package of Aug 10 2016. This development took the staff the OU and General Mills by surprise since no one can remember having such an early Chodosh date from General Mills.

We are still waiting for an update on the Chodosh starting date on Quaker oat meal and other oats products. Meanwhile, the general starting date estimate for oats being Chodosh in cereals is being scaled back from Sept 1 to Aug 4.
