Halacha - Pesach - non Pesach margarine
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: We just realized that the margarine block that we used in some of the food was just kosher, but bot kosher for Pesach. What is the status of the food, the oven, the utensils, etc.? Is this mararine chometz or kitniyos? What should we do?

If it had no Pesach supervision at all, I have no way of knowing what might be in there and what the machinery may have been used for previously. If so, the food must be disposed of and the utensils Kashered. There are grounds to be lenient on the oven.

However, it is likely that even non-Pesach margarine is only Kitnoyos, which is significantly more lenient.  I have no way of saying with certainty. I just called a friend with extensive Kashrus experience, and he too could not say with 100% certainty that no Chametz could be present.
