Israeli produce alert - Peppers & other fruits and veggies

January 17, 2017: From the Star-K:
"Please be aware that red, yellow and orange peppers, as well as other fruits and vegetables from Israel, are consistently being sold in the Baltimore area at produce markets in our neighborhood. From the numerous inquiries we have received, it is apparent that many consumers are unaware of this when shopping. Other examples of produce commonly from Israel are carrots, citrus fruits, persimmons, pomegranates, dates, dill and parsley."
The packages or labels state "Product of Israel." These vegetables require teruma and maaser to be taken.

Israeli produce alert Trader Joes - Peppers

December 21, 2016 - from Kosherquest.org.

"Recently, a number of people have reported seeing different colored peppers, as well as other produce in Trader Joe’s that came from Israel. Please be careful when purchasing any produce that the source is not from Israel, as there are Halachic issues with purchasing fruit and vegetables from Israel (Teruma and Maaser)."

Information on the purchase of Israeli fruits and vegetables including information on Terumos and Maasrot can be found at www.kashrut.com/consumer/vegetables/#TITHING
