Insect Infestation alert on Organic Broccoli Slaw:

July 23, 2020, from the cRc:

The cRc has previously recommended the use of any (non-organic) broccoli slaw without any special washing or checking. However, this summer we have been finding an extremely high level of infestation which we believe are a result of an unusually hot season in the growing areas plus a myriad of covid-19 related changes in the processing farms and plants.

Therefore, at this time, we recommend that broccoli slaw only be used after it is first checked with the thrip cloth method which can be found at https://www.crcweb.org/NewFruitandVeglist.pdf. We will continue to check broccoli slaw and the factors causing such high infestation. Once the situation returns back to normal we will alert the public of the change.

May 7, 2019, 2018 from the cRc:

After months of research, the cRc continues to find a high amount of insect infestation in organic broccoli slaw. We therefore are no longer recommending using organic broccoli slaw without a reliable hashgacha but continue to recommend non-organic broccoli slaw (which we are continuing to monitor as well).
