New Israeli Eida Chareidis logo for greens grown under controlled conditions

November 30, 2016: From Jerusalem Kosher News:

"The Eida Chareidis is advertising its new logo which appears on so-called 'gush katif' greens, items grown under controlled conditions requiring soaking in soapy water and rinsing under a stream of water. These instructions are not new but the Eida feels the new logo will attract attention, concerned too many people are eating these products directly from the bag and here, the prohibition is Biblical! Hence, trying to draw attention to the need for separating leaves, soaking in soapy water and rinsing under running water. Most other hechsherim have similar instructions. One must always read what the product wrapping says. That said, I have seen a limited amount of lettuce 'ready to eat' with an Eida hashgacha in clear plastic boxes. It is quite expensive compared to the other, which is quite expensive compared to the prohibited regularly-grown lettuce but it is out there as well as clearly marked "ready to eat"
