Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following insect infestation alert is from the COR on December 24, 2010.

Please be advised that we are receiving reports of insect infestation in various pasta products, some of which were manufactured in the past 2 to 3 months. Insects can be small and black, approximately 2-3 mm in size. This situation is being monitored and is under review by COR.
At this time, we recommend that you check your pasta before cooking. An easy way to ascertain whether insects are present is to spread the product across a white paper plate and look for the signs of infestation. will be revised.

From hakhel.info: Relating to the reports of insect infestation in various flour and pasta products, an extremely experienced Kashrus professional advised us that he strongly recommends placing these kinds of products into cellophane bags after purchase, as the unprotective cardboard boxes they are sold in (such as the Ronzoni containers) are very much open to infestation.
