Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following Israeli produce alert is from an ad from the Vaad HaKashrush and HaShemita of the Eida Hacharedis-Yerushalalayim on August 5, 2015.

"We were unfortunately notified that various vegetables and produce sourced and grown in Eretz Israel such as potatoes, carrots, red and greeen peppers, cherry tomatoes, etc aare being distributed across the United States and Europe.
These vegetables were most likely planted on Shmiteh or Hetter Mechira.
The public is to be aware of the abouve and thoughly check the source of fruits and vegatables before purchasing to avoid the Issur of which may require Kashering the pots, dishes and utensils.
Furthermore, there are various food products such as potato chips, salads, nuts, frozen aand canned vegetables, jams, etc. which are likewise grown in Smiteh or Heter Mechireh often bearing a clear label 'acccoridng to Heter Mechireh'. The dame includes products from known companies that usually bear the Badatz Seal and speciaal cauthion should be taken to confirm each and every package has the Badatz Kosher stamp on it."

Ed. note:There are different opinions as to whether you can rely on heter mehira. Please check with your rabbi.
