Passover Kashrut Alerts


Passover Kitniot & Misplaced Package Alert

March 24, 2019 from the editor:

Shoppers should check each package in the Passover section of the store for the proper Passover certification. Identically packaged products with and without Passover certifcation are occationally placed mistakenly together. Now there are many products containing kitniot now on the Passover shelves, so Ashkenazi consumers need to check package carefully for the "Ochlei kitniot" designation.

Passover Advisory Dannon Yogurts

April 3, 2018 - from OU:

Dannon has produced some varieties of yogurt certified for Passover when bearing the OUDP symbol. Some 4-packs of yogurt contain a combination of year round OUD (Not Kosher for Passover) yogurts and OUDP (Kosher for Passover) yogurts. Consumers are advised to only use the OUDP yogurts for Passover. The Not Kosher for Passover yogurts do not contain actual chometz, however, we are still advising to set them aside for use after Passover.

Correction to the MK Passsover Guide

March 27, 2018, - from the MK:

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CORRECTION IN OUR PASSOVER GUIDE:

FISH: Only fresh fish do not require a special Pesach Hechsher. Canned and Processed Fish are only acceptable with special Pesach Hechsher.

Salmon and Tuna are listed separately and require Hashgacha when canned or processed. The listing on canned and processed fish is an unfortunate error. Only fresh fish can be consumed for Pesach without a Hechsher.
