Trader Joe's Pizza Dough to lose kosher certification

I just heard this news from a friend in D.C. A friend of hers called TJ's and got the following response:

She called TJ's and found out that they had to move to a new company. (She asked why, and he said that he didn't know but it could be any number of reasons, like keeping up with demand, etc) TJ's always prefers that their products be kosher supervised, and asked the new pizza dough co. if they could be under kosher supervision, and they will see if they can work with a supervision company, but the transition is already done about a month ago, and since then, the dough has not been under supervision. They said that if we want to "rally" we should send in notes on their website, that they want to hear from us.

So, if TJ's apparently is responsive to kosher consumer pressure, and they want the kosher consumers to email in....we should! I know for those of us who live in NY and can get kosher pizza anytime, the dough may not be as important, but for my friends and fam who live in places without (good) kosher pizza, TJ's pizza dough is key!
Just wanted to spread the word. TJ customer inquiry form is here:
