The following potential future kashrus problem is from the RSSL.com posted on November 15, 2010.

Researchers at Oregon State University have developed edible coatings to slow rot and increase shelf life in pre-washed, fresh blueberries. "The coatings used in the study were Semperfresh, acid-soluble chitosan, water-soluble chitosan, calcium caseinate and sodium alginate. Semperfresh is a sucrose ester; chitosan is a derivative of chitin-a natural substance often found in the exoskeletons of insects and crustaceans; and alginate is a polysaccharide commonly found in the cell walls of brown algae."
