Parsley on Pesach: A Message from the OK

While checking parsley for bugs, Rabbi Moshe Horowitz of the OK Kosher Laboratory made an alarming discovery.

Rabbi Moshe Horowitz from the OK Kosher Laboratory is questioning whether parsley should be used for Pesach. While checking the herb for infestation, he found complete wheat stalks mixed in with the bunches. This happened on different days, with parsley coming from two separate boxes.

While the OK is not declaring parsley unfit for use on Pesach, they are cautioning consumers to be careful when using the product.

While the Chabad minhag is to use onions for karpas, in much of the Jewish world, parsley is the herb of choice used at the seder.
