Rio Mare tuna, from Italy
I bought a couple of cans of this tuna on a recent trip, and thought that it was certified kosher. But now I am questioning this and the Italian kashruth website is confusing. This is the simple tuna in olive oil, but I can't find a hechsher or a note about country of origin on the can. Anyone know about this?
Yes, thanks, that's it exactly. There's some sort of a question because apparently the tuna is being caught a different place than it was at the time of the most recent hechsher. And I guess a major consideration with tuna is what else get caught in the nets.
I guess I will try to answer my own question by writing to the Comunita Ebraica in Rome .....
I'm coming to a city where there are no Kosher stores, is there a way to get Kosher products there?
Sure, lots of products sold in the regular stores are Kosher, for example:
Rio Mare tuna with Olive Oil
Kelloggs cereals: Corn Flakes also with chocolate, Rice Krispies, Chochos, Chombos, Miel Pops, All Bran Classic
most juices besides tomato and grape juice.
Here are links to more complete lists: Rabbi Yosef Hadad and Italy Kosher Union lists.
Alternatively you can get the Pranzo Express delivered to you or try any close-by restaurant or catering.
