SALT LAKE CITY, March 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NYSE: USNA), a global nutritional company, is expanding its personalization options by offering a number of OK branded kosher certified products.

"We are excited to offer the kosher certification to provide our customers with another option in personalizing their nutrition."

"All of us here at USANA have proved time and again that we will do whatever it takes to ensure the quality of our products," says Dr. Carsten Smidt, USANA's vice president of research and development. "This certification reinforces our already stringent standards in the cleanliness of our process, our documentation, and adherence to good manufacturing (GMP) protocols."
