Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following kashrus alert is from the CRC on Jan. 29, 2007.

With Tu B’Shevat approaching, the cRc would like to remind everyone about the possible insect infestation in some popular fruits consumed during this time, namely figs and dates. Although plain, unflavored varieties generally are acceptable without hashgacha, there may be a problem with bugs and worms. Those that are sold in bulk are much more likely to be problematic, and although they can be checked for infestation, we do not recommend purchasing figs and dates from this source because of the high likelihood of the presence of worms. Those figs and dated that are packaged under national brand names should be fine. Nevertheless, a cursory inspection should be done to be certain that there is no infestation.
