Red Bell Peppers

December 1, 2022

Please be aware that red bell peppers from Israel are currently being sold in the Chicagoland area. Based on our research, these peppers are to be treated as shemittah vegetable produce (known as sefichin) which is forbidden to be eaten (according to cRc policy not to rely upon the Heter Mechirah for Israeli products sold in the United States). Consumers are reminded to check the source of origin for fruits and vegetables, keeping in mind that produce of Israel adds certain halachic requirements.


The OU has informed us that they no longer certify Frangelico liqueur. Bottles without the OU symbol are not certified. Consumers are reminded to always look for the appropriate kosher logo on certified liquor products.
