Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus alert is from the cRc on August 13, 2009.

We have been informed that area fruit and vegetable stores are now selling cucumbers from Israel. There is presently no problem with Shmittah on fresh cucumbers. However, if the produce is not under a reliable hashgacha, one is still required to take Terumah and Maaser. Israeli produce is usually identified by a sign or sticker on the fruit and/or vegetable. Consumers should always be careful when buying any produce and follow thru with the proper procedures when purchasing produce from Israel.
Ed. note: Kashrut.com has links to information on Teruma and Maaser on www.kashrut.com/consumer/vegetables/#TITHING.
