The following alert concerning Sukkos is from the Jerusalem Kosher News on September 24, 2012.

The Badatz Eida Chareidis posted signs to warn shoppers regarding esrogim purchased in sealed boxes with its hechsher. The hashgacha explains that the kashrus certification is ONLY to verify the source of the esrog, guaranteeing it is not grafted and not orla. The badatz DOES NOT inspect each individual esrog regarding its kashrus (black spots, holes & etc). Therefore, one must determine the level of one’s esrog oneself or in consultation with one’s rav.

Additional information concerning purchase of the minim in Israel from Jerusalem Kosher News can be found here.
