Meat For Passover

The OU says that any kosher meat, is kosher for passover as long as it is raw, unprocessed and contains no other ingredients.. Thoughts?

  1. If the OU says it, it's good enough for me. :)

      Make sense. I think many of the vendors already say that on their packaging but good to hear.

    2. That's always been the case. Some processors use the "Kosher for passover and all year round" labeling as part of their packaging, others just add a sticker as the holiday approaches but it's done more as an assurance than a necessity.

        the workers in local butchers are also probably more careful about bringing chometz into processing area than the rest of the year

        1. re: berel

          They better not be bringing anything in at any time of the year.

      2. Be careful with ground turkey, ground chicken and hot dogs. Look for KLP designation.

          Empire and the hemich stores here are Kosher for Passover displayed on the package,

          Hot dogs is displayed and that I would only purchase from a hemich butcher, as salami or whatever interesting product they might be selling at this holiday season.
