Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus alert is from cRc on December 10, 2014.

It has come to our attention that there are bell peppers and possibly other fruits and vegetables from Israel being sold in various locations in the Chicagoland area.
Please remember that aside for taking the regular precautions of keeping the mitzvos of terumos and maser, this year one also needs to be conscious of the additional mitzvah of keeping Shemittah.

The following kashrus alert is from COR Detroit on December 5, 2014.

BELL PEPPERS FROM ISRAEL are now being sold locally at Meijer. Sunset loose red bell peppers bear a sticker that states Israel, and Sunset Organic Sweet Bell Peppers (2 count package of yellow and red, or orange and red) state Product of Israel on the package. These products have the status of Shemittah, and should not be purchased. If already purchased, consult your Rav.
Consumers should always be careful when buying produce to check the sticker, bag label or original case for the country of origin, due to issues of Shemittah, or of Terumos and Maaseros if it is not Shemittah product. Some additional examples of Israeli produce commonly found in the U.S. include tomatoes, citrus fruit, persimmons, pomelos, dates and parsley.

The following kashrus alert is from the KVH Twitter Feed on November 17, 2014.

HolyLand fresh produce appearing in Boston & greater N.E. area supermarkets. May have Kedushas Sheviis &/or may require tithing.
