Passover Kashrut Alerts


Newer Passover Alerts

The following Passover information is from the CRC posted on March 12, 2015.

Last year we stated that all Dole and Fresh Express brands of fresh salads that are acceptable during the year are also acceptable for Pesach even without the "P" Passover designation on the bag. However, the Star K has stated that does not apply for 2015 and those bagged salads now require a Star K -P kosher for Passover certification.

Bagged vegetables such as pre-washed lettuce (other than Dole and Fresh Express brands), baby carrots, shredded carrots, shredded cabbage, raw cole slaw mix, etc. are acceptable for Passover use if they do not contain sensitive ingredients. However, they should be purchased prior to Passover and must be checked for insects when necessary.
