WATER: Any unflavored, spring or distilled or purified bottled water with no additives listed may be used. (Note: 3 and 5 gallon reusable containers should not be used for Pesach.) Water with added minerals (such as magnesium, potassium, calcium and sodium compounds), is generally acceptable if no flavors or vitamins are listed; e.g., Dasani and Nestle Pure Life brands of unflavored purified water. However, some brands, e.g., Kirkland Signature brand Purified Water with minerals added, list calcium citrate, which may be derived from chometz, and are not recommended

PASSOVER ALERT BOSTON - Taam Tuv red horseradish

March 30, 2021 from the Ira Axelrod, a Boston based food distributor:

"It has come to our attention that a large number of bottles of Taam Tuv red horseradish, supposedly intended for Passover use, did not have the appropriate Passover markings on the jars. It is possible that it was only a printing or labelling error. But it is also possible that jars NOT meant for Passover got mixed in with the Passover batch. Apparently, a significant number of these jars wound up in the Boston area."

"Until the situation is fully investigated and is concluded to everyone's satisfaction, it has been recommended that, if you have any of these jars, you refrain from using them."

From the OK in response to a question from the editor: Any chometz in the formula would be botul.

South African Passover Notice - Hills range of pet food

March 26, 2018: From the Beth Din of Johannesburg:

It has just come to our attention that most of the Hills range of pet food contains wheat and is therefore Chametz. With the exception of Hills Canine and Feline I/D which is Kosher for Pesach - for dogs/cats and puppies/kittens of all sizes.

If you cannot get the Kosher for Pesach variant mentioned above, your regular pet food will be included in the sale of Chametz done through the Beth Din. In this case, we recommend leaving it somewhere outside the house, and asking your non-Jewish domestic help to feed your pets over the course of Pesach.
