KCL (Lakewood) has informed us that hot peppers from Israel are now available in the market, and may find their way to local stores.
These peppers require hafrashas terumos and maasros before use.
This once again underscores the importance of checking for the country of origin of your produce.

Some red and yellow peppers at Trader Joes are labeled “product of Israel”. One should always check the origins of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Costco in Brooklyn is reportedly selling citrus from Israel. Same problem.
