Sonny & Joe’s Passover Tahini Dip: The OU certified a special Passover production of Sonny & Joe’s Tahini Dip which is a kitniot product. These containers are labeled with an OU sticker that states “approved for those who eat kitniot on Passover”. Some of the Passover Tahini Dip containers were mistakenly labeled with a plain OUP without specifying that the product is kitniot. This is a kitniot product.
