2023-3-26 Pesach Update PDF

PACKAGES OF THE FOLLOWING PRODUCTS WITHOUT PESACH MARKING were for a brief time mistakenly placed in the Pesach section at The Grove. Check every label of your purchases for Pesach marking:

  • GEFEN ULTRA DISH SOAP LIQUID [Pesach containers bear OU-P. Non-Pesach containers bear a plain OU and state “Not for Passover use”.]

RODELLE BAKING COCOA with a Scroll K symbol, sold at Costco, is acceptable for Pesach without Pesach marking.

BARTENURA WINES IN CANS are available in four varieties. The Moscato and Rosato wines are Kosher for Pesach and bear an OU-P. The Peach Moscato and Lychee Moscato flavored wines are not Kosher for Pesach and state “Not for Passover”.

WINES FROM ISRAEL of Shemitah years (e.g., 2022 or 2015 vintages) are being sold in the U.S., and should be avoided due to Shemitah restrictions. Some of these wines normally bear acceptable certifications in other years, but on Shemitah product their certification will differ. Check each bottle carefully.

AM FRESH NORTH AMERICA GRAPEFRUIT, sold at some Costco stores, are produce of Israel as stated on the plastic bag closures and as stated on the cases (“Jaffa / Mehadrin – Israel”), and require taking of Terumos and Maaseros.
