Passover Alert: Liebers black truffle oil and white truffle oil

April 6, 2022 from Rabbi Weismandl:

הודעה בעזהי"ת
הנני בזה לאשר שהסיבה בקשתי להסיר את Truffle oil מעל המדפים של החניות, אינה מטעם שנמצא בהם חמץ או קטניות, אלא שהתצמיות לא נתפקחו לפסח, האומנם שלפי המידע אין בהם חמץ או קטניות כלל. וע"כ מי שכבר בישול או אפה בהם, יכול להשתמש בהם בשופי, חוץ לאלו שמקפידים ביותר שלא לאכול שום דבר מאנסי
נייטרא לפסח שאין לו השגחה תמידי לפסח.
