Passover Kashrut Alerts

The following Passover information is from the Hakhadl.info on March 25, 2014.

The Kollel Los Angeles, under the leadership of Rabbi Gershon Bess, Shlita, has once again prepared 5774: A Passover Guide To Cosmetics And Medications, a detailed list of acceptable products that may be used on Pesach, which is available by contacting the Kollel at 323-933-7193. Rabbi Bess writes that HaRav Elyashiv, Z’tl, and yblch’t HaRav Wosner, Shlita, urged his continued publication of this listing--both for reasons in Halacha and in Minhag Yisrael. At the outset of the Guide, Rabbi Bess warns “no one should refrain from taking any required medication, even if it contains Chometz, without first consulting his/her physician and Rav.” Rabbi Bess also notes that the list (unless otherwise indicated) does not address whether a particular product is Kosher--but only its Chometz-free status. Something can, of course, be non-Kosher and Chometz-free. Of particular note is that items in the Crest, Herbal Essence, Pantene, Mary Kay, Cortizone, Claritin and Amoxicillin lines do contain Chometz. Additionally, Lactaid remains a Chometz issue. Page 4 of the Guide provides a list of ingredients to be on the lookout for. Page 64 of the Guide provides a list of products to be on the lookout for.
For questions to Rabbi Bess regarding the Guide, one may email rgbess@hotmail.com. In the upcoming weeks, for the latest updates (not yet updated for this year) to the Guide, we refer you to www.kehilasyaakov.org.
From the Star-K: Rabbi Bess's Guide is available for purchase on your smart phone. Search for Star-K where you get apps.
