Why Stay in England?

Latest reports say that Mars Twix and Snickers in the UK will all be non-Kosher pretty soon.

What with:
.. and now, no more Mars Bars?!!!! I have finally come to the conclusion that there is absolutely no reason for staying in England. All Jews should definitely make Aliya now!

You'll be pleased to know the London Bet Din sent round this email yesterday (it's also on their web site):

London Beth Din Kashrut Division Annoucement

Kosher Status Of Mars Products

Articles have recently appeared in the national press concerning the use of whey derived from animal rennet in Masterfoods (Mars) confectionery.

We have been aware for many years that whey can be a by product of cheese-making and that, even today, animal rennet can be used in cheese manufacture.

Since whey derived from this source contains only trace amounts of rennet, it is permitted according to halacha.

There is therefore no problem with any of the Masterfoods (Mars) products that are currently on the London Beth Din approved list.
