Adar 24, 5769
Question
A friend of mine insists that all substances including medications and medical appliances must be prepared according to the laws of kashrus-Thus do things like enemas need a Hechsher?
Answer
Enemas are not a kashrus issue; medicines rarely are. “medical appliances” is too general a term. Please be more specific.
