Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following raisin advisory is from OK on Feb 2, 2009.

In response to the recent report and concern of infestation in some packaged raisins, the OK has carefully investigated the matter and after extensive testing and in consultation with our Rabbonim the OK continues to maintain that raisins, when stored under proper conditions (cool dry and clean environments) do not require checking for bugs. Please note that certain food items including but not limited to dried fruit, nuts, flour, spices, seeds, etc, when packed and/or stored in a warm or moist and unclean environments, often leads to insect infestation. These items should be avoided unless thoroughly checked.
