In order to land the Kashruth contract for Barton's Bonboniere and Candy, the Union (of Orthodox Jewish congregations) withdrew its () hechsher from Barricini Candy, arguing that Barricini kept its stores open on the Sabbath while Barton's stores are closed. Yet the Union of Orthodox Jewish congregations continue to give hechsherim to concerns (including Jewish-owned) that do not observe the Sabbath. Why then was the hechsher taken from Barricini? The answer is simple: Barton's made this the condition for paying the Orthodox Union for affixing its to the packages.
