A Hebrew sign that states Basar Kasher (“kosher meat”), is not sufficient assurance of kashrut. The presence of non-kosher meat on the same premises can easily lead to mix-ups. Many butchers do not salt their meat unless the customer requests that it salted. Sometimes only a tiny, hidden sign notifies the buyer of this fact. One must ask to make sure the meat has been salted. If one has used unsalted meat, a qualified rabbi must be consulted regarding the status of the pots and dishes.
