Frozen brocolli, cauliflower, etc [hot house grown]

We aren't discussing at this time the unreliable claims of frozen vegetables free of any insect infestation.
The amount of poisons that are on those vegetables R"L is staggerring. The FDA doesn't monitor it when ikt comes into the USA, as it's a finished product. The funny part is people are eating it because of the "health-bebnefits". What we really have is neshoma poisonous insects & bodily poisons.

SNAPPLE-Should one rely on the kashrus standard?

We understand that Snapple is produced in many different plants. Some or most of the plants also produce non-kosher and or dairy. The products are pasteurized on hot equipment. Kashering is done by company CIP records not with a mashgiach, etc.

There has been more kashrus mishaps than can or should be acceptable to the kosher consumer.We only know about the ones that were caught & publicized. It seems that the kosher certifier has lost complete control of kosher at Snapple. BEWARE!

Men’s “Rocklin by Stetson” Cap- June ‘09

Bencraft Hatters of Williamsburg is currently selling a men’s “Rocklin by Stetson” cap (Germany) whose contents label reads: 50% Wool 50% Linen.

Description: It is woven in a basket weave pattern [2 X 2]. Two threads going in one direction are off-white (one wool and the other one linen). The two threads going in the other direction are black (one wool and the other one linen).

Precautionary measure: With a 2 X 2 basket weave it is possible to come to an inaccurate conclusion about the composition of a fabric.

How could that happen? If only one thread from each pair is pulled and tested, one could end up with a linen thread in both directions and a determination that the fabric is pure linen.

This could of happened especially with this particular cap being that each thread pair seemed similar in both color and appearance.

In conclusion: When one is checking a 2 X 2 basket weave pattern for shatnez, it isn’t sufficient to test one thread in each direction; both threads going in both directions must be tested, even if they seem similar both in color and in appearance.
