Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following shmitta alert is from the Star-K on December 26, 2008.

Please note, it has come to the Star-K's attention that GOLAN brand MOSCATTO (2008), produced under the supervision of Rabbi Shmuel Oerbach during the shmittah year under the auspices of the Otzer Bais Din, was inadvertently sold at Kosher Bite in Baltimore, MD. This wine is vested with kedushas sheviis and must be handled with special sanctity.
See www.star-k.org/kashrus/kk-shmitta-5768.htm for more details about the proper handling of wines possessing kedushas sheviis.
In general, when purchasing from any vendor, consumers are urged to check all Israeli wine labels to ascertain whether they were produced during a shmittah year.
