Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following shmitta alert are from the Star-K and the MK on March 20, 2015.

Star-K: Please be aware that carrots from Israel are being sold in the Baltimore area and across the U.S. The packages state "Product of Israel." These carrots may have Kedushas Shviis and require special care. If you bought them, and still have them in your possession, contact your local Orthodox rabbi for further guidance.
Seven Mile Market in Baltimore is monitored by Star-K and produce sold there does not have this issue

MK: Please be advised that fruit and vegetables grown in Israel are now being sold in stores across Quebec. Due to the special halachic implications pertaining to these products, please ask your rabbi for guidance.
