Passover Kashrut Alerts


The following Dallas Passover alert is from the Dallas Kashruth Commission on March 16, 2012.

As you know, for the last 40 or so years the Vaad Hakashrus has supervised a production of kosher for Passover milk for Dallas and other cities throughout Texas. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we regret to inform you that this year will be an exception, as none of the local dairies have agreed to produce KFP milk. We expect that next year DK will once again have a local production of KFP milk. As always, DK will do its best to make this happen.
As you may know, on Passover it is preferable for one to consume certified KFP milk when it is available, so this year one may have a dilemma as to what to do. One may ask, "What milk do we consume this year when KFP is not readily available for purchase?"
The options for KFP consumers this year are limited, but there are two reasonable choices:

  1. The Cholov Yisroel milk available at Tom Thumb/Preston & Forest, Tom Thumb/Coit & Campbell and Albertsons/Hillcrest & Arapaho carry Lamers Cholov Yisroel Milk which is KFP . It can be found in the KFP section of each of the three markets. The problems one may encounter with Lamers milk is that it is more expensive and comes in a limited variety of sizes and types of milk. Although retailers did order more than usual Lamers milk this year, be aware that this milk will probably sell out quickly due to the anticipated high demand.
  2. The other option for KFP consumers is to buy ALL the milk needed for the 10 days of Passover before Friday, April 6th at 10:58am. This option only applies to unflavored white milk and not for chocolate milk or any flavored milks. The reason the purchase of milk is allowed before Passover is that any trace of chometz from the vitamins or equipment will become nullified ONLY prior to Passover. Therefore, buying white milk after Friday, April 6th at 10:58am is not considered approved for kosher for Passover use!
If you have any questions concerning this option do not hesitate to call DK for assistance.
