Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following teruma and maaser and alert is from the Vaad of Denver, Chief Rabbinate of Bnei Brak and the Beth Din of Johannesburg posted on December 20, 2009.

The produce from Israel needs to be tithed (Terumah, Ma'aser) properly before consuming. Please be aware that Sam's Club is selling packages of the multi colored peppers that says product of Mexico and Israel. These peppers need to be tithed without a brocho since it is sofek from where they originate. Other similar packages say product of Mexico and Nicaragua so one should be diligent in their selection.
The Beth Din of Johannesburg is stating that Grapefruit and other produce from Israel are currently available in South Africa and these need to be tithed.
