Many products say "Kosher for Passover and all year round". Isn't "kosher for Passover" also automatically kosher year round?

  • Many years ago, a relative of mine was traveling to Canada after Pesach and passed through a town in upstate NY for mincha. The rabbi saw him and asked him to do a favor and sit in fit him for 20 min in his office to answer phone questions. Being a Bachur he was hesitant s he was unsure if he’d be able to answer. The rabbi assured him it will be fine. The first caller asked if something that is kosher for Passover can be eaten after Passover. (He then realized he would be able to answer). Perhaps they’re trying to clarify for those who don’t know

For food, yes. For some medications and cosmetics, there are is a guide that checks for chametz but not overall kashrus. (Whether or not you need to have these be kosher for Passover is a CYLOR issue.)


Technically something could be treif but kasher lipesach. The labeling is a bit superfluous because non-kosher products aren't usually made kosher lipesach.

    This is incorrect. I can't imagine any kashrut agency that would label a non-kosher product "kasher l'pesach"

    @KovyJacob That's not what most people mean when they say that something is "kosher l'Pesach". Instead, they mean "I can eat this on Pesach". This is presumably also what the original post intended, and why you have many downvotes.

    @KovyJacob But you assumed a meaning of "kosher for Passover" that was unintended. If you change the definition of words, you can say anything you want, but your answer is also useless to the OP.

    @KovyJacob You're saying things, but they aren't responding to my comment. Anyone else can read these comments and figure out what's going on.
