Kosher Alert: Bell Peppers From Israel

Peppers from Israel can be found in your local grocery, please be on the lookout when shopping for produce.

If you have purchased peppers from Israel

Contact your local Rabbi as there might be in issue with Shmita status.
Bell Peppers from Israel (red, yellow and orange) are being sold in local supermarkets and grocery stores, including krogers and trader joes.

At this time we are forbidden to eat due to shemitah restriction of “sefichin”. (they do not have kedushas shevi’is, and may be disposed of.)

Carefully check the fine print on the package or sticker on the peppers for the country of origin
