Insect Infestaion alert - from KROGER PEARLED BARLEY

Janary 4, 2019 from the COR Detroit:

KROGER brand PEARLED BARLEY with Sell By date JUL 06 19, which is currently being sold in local Kroger stores, has been found to be infested, and should not be used without checking the product carefully. Shake the dry barley in a strainer over a white surface (not plastic, which creates a shine and static) and check the surface for any infestation. Or place a small pile of barley - about two ounces at a time - on a white paper plate (not plastic) with a very good overhead light that illuminates the plate. Use a finger or a fork to drag a small amount of barley away from the pile, spreading that barley in a single layer. Visually inspect the spread-apart barley, looking for webbing, black insects and white or tan worms between or under the kernels. Repeat this until the entire pile has been checked. Then do the same for the rest of the barley in the package. After checking, it is advisable to thoroughly rinse before use. Consumers who store barley or other grains for extended amounts of time are advised to store these products in the refrigerator or freezer in order to prevent infestation.
