Insect infestation alert for Amira Soft Wheat

January 9, 2019 - From the MK:

The MK wishes to inform the public that the following products:
Soft Wheat made for Amira has been found to be infested.

From the COR Detroit on how to check grains for infestation:
Shake the dry the grains 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 the grains - 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 the grains away from the pile, spreading those grains in a single layer. Visually inspect the spread-apart grains, 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 grains 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.
