Baltimore Distributor Information

A&L Foods distributor of kosher foods (to Giant, Target, and Safeway in Baltimore) sells their chometz through STAR-K. The following chometz products may be purchased from these stores immediately after Pesach as follows:

Giant– Section Labeled KOSHER FOODS: Dry, Frozen, Refrigerated
Safeway– Section Labeled KOSHER FOODS: Dry, Frozen, Refrigerated
Target– Section Labeled KOSHER FOODS: Dry, Frozen

Chometz products found in the remainder of these supermarkets may have been purchased from a Jewish distributor. Therefore, it is commendable not to purchase chometz products from these stores until four weeks after Pesach. One may purchase chometz products from these stores beginning on the Wednesday after Lag B’omer,
May 17th, 2017.

We do not have information regarding these stores in other parts of the country.
