Kashrus Alert: Additional Infestation Found in B&G Gherkins
The Star-K Kosher has released an update to a previous Kashrus Alert notifying the community of an insect infestation of some lots of B&G Gherkins.
The previously affected lots, printed on the side of the lid, have been identified, and the new infestation added below:
- #25021 – Best By Feb 25 2023
- #09031 – Best By Mar 09 2023
- #24861 – Best By Jun 24 2023
- #25061 – Best by Jun 25 2023 – NEWLY IDENTIFIED
These lots should not be used.
“It is unclear at this time how many other lots may be affected,” the Star-K had previously warned. “We will be sure to issue updated alerts as warranted.”
“We have implemented additional oversight systems and procedures for the new harvest season,” the Star-K noted. “In the meantime, consumers of other lots currently on the market are advised to slice open each gherkin to check for possible infestation.”
