Halacha - Kosher Vegetables
Submitted by avi  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Can I buy cut up fruits and vegetables in supermakets? (That they cut up) Does packaged lettuce have to have a hashkacha on it? Lastly, if a product just has an ou on it can I assume it's pareve?

It is advisable not to purchase cut fruit from a market that has no Kosher supervision because the knife may have been used previously in the meat or fish department. If necessary they fruit should be scraped clean at home. Packaged lettuce would only need a hechsher if it is from Israel and has issues of Teruma and Maaser or if you want to eat it without checking for insects. OU by itself generally indicates a Pareve product, unless it obviously isn't.
