Patron tequila has a KA kosher for Passover. Anyone know if that's a good hechsher?

It's on this list:

Is there any חשש חמץ or קטניות with Silica Gel Dessicant packs such as https://smile.amazon.com/Silica-Gel-Desiccants-2-1-Inches/dp/B003DKQB02? Is it OK to pack leftover matzos in boxes with these inside for use next year?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

The silica gel is obviously not. But neither are paper towels, napkins etc. Yet if it might come in direct contact with food we try to make sure that no חמץ or kitniyos starches are used on the paper.

Neither is the matzah

Yehuda57 needs to spew a certain amount of sarcasm in order to survive through the day.

Does anyone know about Teva meat from costco? its under the OU and Reb Dovid Miller from monsey, but I can't seem to find out much about R' Dovid Miller, besides a ZMAN article, which I definitely don't consider reliable.

Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

I believe he's a Chassidishe Ruv in Monsey. I would assume he's reliable. Maybe call him for more info 845-356-1293
