Rabbi Bleich is very well-respected in the kashrus industry, and he has a tremendous amount of practical industry know-how. I'm not sure how anything he said here would be "out on a limb." An "OU-D" can mean any of the following: Product is halachically dairy. Product was made on dairy equipment. (I.e. don't eat it with meat, but you could eat it ...

The sefer "Zikaron L'Moshe" (pg. 65) writes that the Chasam Sofer originally understood that the reason one must wait six hours after meat, is because that is how long it takes to digest the food, and therefore this only applies to one who ate a meal in the day. However, when one sleeps the food digests quicker, and he may eat milk even before six hours are ...

Rav Eliezer Melamed says that if the meat meal is finished and it is a matter of waiting the prescribed time (6 hours) then one should taste the hershey bar (or ice cream in his example) and rely on the Rishonim that say you don't have to wait rather than make a Beracha for no reason. This does not apply when one is in middle of a meat meal, as there is no ...

Although the Torah says not to cook "in the milk of the mother", this is a common example, since the mother's milk is at hand. In actuality any meat is forbidden with any milk. (Tur Yore De'a 87, Shulchan Aruch YD 87:2)

The Darkei Teshuva (Munkatch) 89:1 brings that if it one eats basar neveilah (not slaughtered correctly) or treifah (fatal defect) bshogeg, then they would need to wait, but if they ate basar timeiah (non-kosher species) bshogeg, then no waiting is necessary. Text of Darkei Teushva:

Kaf HaChaim in siman 89 #8 writes in the name of דע׳ק If one forgets and starts to eat cheese during the six hours, he may finish and he does not need to stop. He also does not need to fast because of this mistake, being that there is no issue of eating issur here, it is merely a safeguard. Chacham Ovadia Yosef in his commentary on the Ben Ish Chai called ...

Just because something is called a "delicatessen" and serves traditional Eastern European fare does not mean that the restaurant and its food conforms to the ritual and dietary standards of Kosher laws. Under these laws, meat and dairy are consumed separately and a restaurant, if it wanted to have rabbinical supervision, would have to serve one or the other. ...

Mishne Berurah (Biur Halacha 216:2 s.v. haMusk) writes that one should not deliberately smell nonkosher food out of concern that they may be tempted to eat it. He reiterates his position in regards to smelling Chametz on Pesach which is also assur bahana'ah and all year long people eat it that one may not smell it on Pesach. However, closing one's nose is ...

Rav Moshe Feinstein (Igros Moshe 1:158) rules that the wife takes the customs of the husband whether they are more lenient or more strict: האשה צריכה להתנהג כמנהג הבעל בין לחומרא בין לקולא This is the same as with anyone that moves to a different place and plans to stay there, that he keeps the customs of that place (Shulchan Aruch YD 214:2).

I had the same question concerning exactly this particular product. I called the chocolate company (Strauss - Illit) and was told that that chocolate is produced on the same machines as their milky chocolates without kashering the machines in between,thus rendering it milky although it contains no actual milk ingredient. Nevertheless it would still be ...

According to the Mishna B'rura (494:16), one does not need to recite a b'racha acharona in between the dairy and the meat, but the tablecloth must be changed in between the dairy and the meat if both are eaten at the same table. (Nevertheless, he must clean his mouth from the dairy before eating meat). If the dairy food was hard cheese or the equivalent, ...

Doseofhalacha.com address the custom of waiting 3 hours to eat milk after meat: Question: I’ve always waited three hours after eating meat before eating milky foods though was recently told that this custom has no basis and I must wait 6 hours.

Let's assume the people eating it are all non-Jews. At that point the only problems (that I can think of) are: cooking meat and milk together, and benefiting from meat-and-milk-cooked-together. If you're just doing the dessert, cleanup, or setup, I can't see that as tangible benefit from the main course. (Feeding it to your dog when you would otherwise ...

Your first question should be asked of somone who is an expert in animal slaughter such as the OU or the STAR-K (Baltimore Vaad Hakashrus) who can tell you if the 'humane' practices required by the FDA ensure that the meat is not 'living' when it is being cut up originally. It could be a matter of how long after the slaughter they wait to actually cut it ...

One who ate meat may eat pareve food [=neither meat nor dairy] that was cooked in a clean milchig [=dairy] pot after finishing the meat. ― the Star-K, citing Rabbi Aharon Kotler

The Mishbetzot Zahav,1 in comment 4 to YD 95 , says (in disagreement with other authorities) that it is forbidden, ab initio, to cook pareve food in a meat pot with the intention of later re-heating it in a dairy pot. He says that this would be similar to "nullifying a prohibition ab initio," which is generally forbidden. Perhaps the Star-K wants to prevent ...

R Shlomo Aviner was asked about a cheeseburger made with this product and answered that it is permissible for two reasons: since everyone today has seen and knows veggie burgers, there is no problem of marit ayin "we do not make new decrees" and our Sages did not make a decree against eating parve burgers with parve cheese Hot from the press: the ...

Re: Sephardim Although the Shulkhan arukh sets the waiting period at 6 hours (following the Rambam and others), in the introduction the Bet Yosef writes that if anything he writes in this book contradicts a pre-existing custom in your community, you should keep that custom. So, while the popular practice among Sephardim is to wait 6 hours, it should ...

As far as I can tell no one has mentioned a very interesting side note that Rambam makes: מאכלות אסורות ט כה [כו] מי שאכל גבינה או חלב תחילה--מותר לאכול אחריו בשר מיד, וצריך שידיח ידיו ויקנח פיו בין הגבינה ובין הבשר. ובמה יקנח פיו--בפת או בפירות, שלועסן ובולען או פולטן; ובכול מקנחין את הפה--חוץ מתמרים או קמח או ירקות, שאין אלו מקנחין יפה. ...

This is most certainly "a thing": Shopping Bag One should preferably not put meat and dairy foods in one shopping bag. Meat and dairy foods may drip on one another.
