Bell Peppers from Israel

Red, yellow, and orange bell peppers from Israel are currently being sold in many American stores, such as Trader Joe’s and Kroger. Since vegetable produce grown during a shemittah year (known as sefichin) is forbidden to be eaten, please check the origin of produce prior to consumption. Often a brand will have the same product type sourced from Israel and other locations as well, so each package or item should be checked.
