1 × Food 5
Today's kosher consumer is usually not directly involved in the preparation of kosher meat. Nevertheless, through her careful decisions concerning where to shop, she is ultimately responsible for the kashrut of the meat and poultry she serves. The butcher plays a crucial role in the kashrut process. He must be thoroughly knowledgeable in the many laws relating to kosher meat, and be a person of unquestioned integrity and personal Torah observance. Because adherence to every detail of halachah (Jewish law) may sometimes mean loss of money for the seller, the butcher's own commitment to Torah law must be of the highest order. A reliable butcher always allows a mashgiach (kashrut supervisor) to inspect his plant to see that all laws are properly observed and that the highest standard of kashrut is maintained.
1 × Food 3
Meat advertised or labeled as kosher in a supermarket requires careful scrutiny. On chickens, a small metal tag called a plumba, bearing the name of the poultry supplier, is generally attached to the wing of the chicken. The plumba bears the kosher seal, ensuring that the chicken has been properly koshered. If the chicken is cut into parts, the plumba should be attached to the bag in which the chicken is packaged.

A Hebrew sign that states Basar Kasher ("kosher meat"), is not sufficient assurance of kashrut. The presence of non-kosher meat on the same premises can easily lead to mix-ups. Many butchers do not salt their meat unless the customer requests that it salted. Sometimes only a tiny, hidden sign notifies the buyer of this fact. One must ask to make sure the meat has been salted. If one has used unsalted meat, a qualified rabbi must be consulted regarding the status of the pots and dishes.
