Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus alert is from the cRc on July 21, 2015.

Produce from Israel requires special attention to ensure that it is "kosher". This includes oversight that it is neither arlah nor from shemittah, and that terumah and ma’aser are separated.
For more on those terms, see IsraeliProduce
As part of its certification of Hungarian Kosher (Skokie), the cRc addresses these issues for bell peppers, carrots, Jaffa oranges and any other Israeli produce offered for sale. Accordingly, consumers may consume all produce sold at this store and can rest assured that all of the mitzvos specific to the land of Israel have been fulfilled.
