The following South African kashrus notice is from the Beth Din of Johannesburg on October 13, 2010.

Alternative Method for Checking Rice and Other Grains

  1. Visually scan the product and look for obvious signs of infestations (weevils, worms, and/or webbing). If you find signs of infestation, then discard (or return) the product. If no infestation is found, then continue with the next step.
  2. Place the rice/grains in a household sieve and then agitate the sieve while holding it over a light box or sheet of white paper.
  3. Carefully scrutinize the light box or sheet of paper.
  4. If you find any infestation whatsoever, then discard (or return) the product. If there is no infestation, then the product may be used.
