The following South African kashrus notice is from the Johannesburg Beth Din on September 8, 2008.

In response to a number of queries regarding our previous notice regarding cut and fruits and vegetables, we wish to clarify as follows:
Halacha allows for one to buy cut up fruits and vegetables (which do not require checking for infestation) from a reputable fruit and vegetable shop, even where there is no supervision. This applies to all “non sharp” items, such as potatoes, butternut, carrots, pumpkin, tomatoes, squash, peppers, pineapple, mango, mushrooms, melons etc.
One should not however purchase cut up “sharp” items such as onions, garlic, lemons, spring onions, radish etc, unless absolutely certain that the knives and equipment are dedicated to fruits and vegetables only. If in doubt, it is preferable not to buy them.
