Lipton
Teabags-(Decaffeinated)

Symbol required.

Kosher for Passover without special certification.

 

EXCERPT from OU Kosher Passover list.

Am I correct that the symbol required means OU symbol?
If I understand the above excerpt correctly, I may use Lipton Decaf Tea Bags on Passover even though they do NOT have OU-P symbol. They only have OU. Am I correct?

Thanks.

  1. Yes, I think that you are correct. According to the wording (which is also found on the OU site) so long as the regular OU symbol appears on the packaging it is considered to be Kosher for Passover even if their is no special Passover supervision. However, just as a precaution you may want to contact the OU directly to ascertain that you can use the teabags on Passover. Consumer Hotline: 212-613-8241 kosherq@ou.org
