ALERT: Israeli produce

ALERT: Israeli produce sold in the USA, even with hashgocha should not be used. Some have an OU stating no chashash orlah, etc. Don't rely

Hmm.. Why not?

Are you saying that Machne Yehuda, the Shuk, has to close down? And we should not eat carrots, potatoes, green beans, squash, eggplant, turnips, oranges, bananas, apples, kiwis, etc.? Please be more precise.

Or is this kashrut getting even for declaring the produce with heksharim as being dangerous for your health, so much so that Rabbi Metzger said not to eat it, I.e., it's poisonous??

It would be helpful if you would give a reason. I purchased dates at Costco with a ou and rabannut hechsher, should I discard them?

The OU in Israel is very problomatic. The Rabanut is also not to be relied upon.Can u return them?
