Passover Kashrut Alerts

Ashkenazim: Be aware of Passover products containing kiniot

March 23, 2016 - From the Kosherquest.org, reissued March 19, 2017:

Be alert for products on the shelf this year that bear a Hashgacha for Pesach that include Kitniyos. The O/U and the Star-K among others have given Hashgacha to many Kitniyos products. The symbol is "O/UP – Kitniyot" or Star-S. Ashkenazic Jews and Sephardim, whose minhag it is to NOT eat Kitniyos, should be aware of the growing number of Pesach products available that contain Kitniyos and are reserved only for those Sephardic Jews whose minhag it is to eat Kitniyos on Pesach.

Ed. reminder: Check every package for the appropriate Passover designation. Non-Passover products can also be mixed in with the Passover ones.
