Does anyone know if there is going to be a kashrus problem with maple syrup next year?
A rather large amount of maple syrup was stolen last year. The thieves did not keep it in the original casks, but transfered it into their own containers. Now the syrup has been recovered, and presumably the owner will transfer it back to the normal storage area (although I don't actually know that).
Is this going to be a kashrus problem? We have no way to know what the thieves did with the product while they had it. And the Canadian cartel keeps the product in storage for several years.
Can you make a product batel if some containers are treif, other are not, but they are not actually mixed together, just stored together?
More than the halachic question, I'm curious if Kashrus agencies are/will check into this.
