GROCERY STORES

Fish 
 
HEB [Meyerland Store]:
Kosher for Passover Seafood will be/is available in the store where the Kosher fish can be found. All seafood that is KFP is marked accordingly.
 
Randalls [Meyer Park Store]:
- All HKA certified fresh unseasoned raw Kosher fish from the Randalls refrigerator case are  Kosher  for  Pesach  all year, even without Passover certification on the package.   
- Any fish selected from the deli display case and personally packaged for the customer are not guaranteed to be KFP since it is  being handled  in a  chametz  area.
 
Meat 
 
HEB [Meyerland Store]:
All  HKA Kosher certified raw meats and poultry (including ground beef & ground poultry) that were sold at HEB are Kosher for Passover all year long.  Prepackaged meats under the OU or other Kashrus organizations require Passover certification unless otherwise noted.
- Deli meats are NOT KFP unless labeled accordingly.
 
Randalls [Meyer Park Store]:
All HKA Kosher certified raw meats and poultry (including ground beef & ground poultry) that were sold at Randalls from the refrigerator case are Kosher for Passover all year long.  
- Prepackaged meats under the OU or other Kashrus organizations require Passover certification unless otherwise noted.
 Any meat or chicken sold at Randalls from the Kosher Deli counter during the year are NOT Kosher for Passover since the deli area  is not kept KFP all year long.

Dry and Refrigerated goods
 
HEB Meyerland- Passover dry goods aisle is located on aisle 26. The refrigerated items are in the regular spot across from the meat and dairy fridges. Please check  endcaps for more Kosher for Passover items.

Randalls Meyerpark- Kosher aisle was redone and is all Kosher for Passover ( except the right portion labeled chometz)
In addition, there are many displays in the back next to the deli. 

Please make sure to check every item for Kosher for Passover status as sometimes things are put back incorrectly.
