Telma Soup Cubes for Pesach

We have received queries from people who inadvertently used Telma soup cubes with the OU Hechsher but were not marked OU P. The non-Pesach product looks almost identical to the Pesach product.

We have been in contact with the Rabbi who is responsible for the Kashrut of Unilever in Israel who says that it may contain actual Chometz (yeast extract) which is a flavour enhancer.

Any products prepared with such cubes may not be eaten on Pesach. Vessels used before Pesach are unaffected.

Always check each and every item you buy to make sure it carries a Pesach Hechsher from a reliable Kashrut authority – even if you find it on the “Pesach” shelves of the supermarket.
