Israel - Potatoes are not allowed entry into Bnei Brak in past two weeks, because they have worms and city’s rabbi forbids them to be marketed Haim Levinson.
Rabbi Moshe Landau discovered that this season’s potatoes are afflicted with worms and other insects. Because of this, sale of potatoes is prohibited in Bnei Brak, unless the grocer has an in-house Kashrut supervisor who thoroughly checks the inventory.
Most of the grocers in Bnei Brak are under the Kashrut supervision of the city’s rabbi, compelling the city’s residents to forego potato borekas, French fries.
