Troubling inspection record for Zomick’s
(Page 2 of 2)

Zomick’s products are sold throughout the Five Towns and nationally. Above, bread on the shelves of the Foodtown in Hewlett.

The company’s status as a kosher baker wasn’t affected by the failed inspections, Zomick’s officials said. “Since these violations did not affect the products themselves, it did not compromise either food safety or the kosher status of the product,” they said.

Company officials stated that in June 2012, they voluntarily had inspectors from the National Sanitation Foundation, an independent, not-for-profit organization that provides standards development, product certification, auditing, education and risk management for public health and the environment. Zomick’s procedures passed the NSF’s review, according to the Inwood baker. NSF spokeswoman Greta Houlihan could not confirm the information citing client confidentiality concerning the conducted facility audits.

Two Lawrence residents, Jacqueline Handel and Jeffrey Hirth, purchase Zomick’s products. Handel remembers when they were in Far Rockaway and the store on Central Avenue. “Never had a problem with Zomick’s, with anything,” she said. “All our bread is Zomick’s, the kids eat all their pastries,” Hirth said. We’ve never seen vermin in anything.”
