New York - Kashrus Alert: Cascade Action Pacs
New York - The New Square Kashrus Council has announced that all types of Cascade Action Pacs dishwasher detergent should not be used as the gel packet containing the soap is made out of non-kosher materials, placing them in the category of nevayla/treifa.
All Cascade Action Pacs, no matter when they were purchased, should be discarded.
This announcement affects only Cascade Action Pacs and all other Cascade products bearing reliable supervision may be used.
Asked if use of this item created any kashrus problems in either the dishwasher itself or items that were in the dishwasher at the time of use, a spokesman at New Square Kosher told VIN News “Our Rabbonim said that the keilim are not a problem, but it is a appropriate to run the dishwasher through one cycle, without dishes and with no soap.”
