Please be advised that we have discovered some infestation on table grapes from Peru and Chile.

We have found a particular species of mites that are very small (about half of a millimeter) and hard to detect. While both factual and halachic research is ongoing we advise that grapes from Peru and Chile be washed carefully and thoroughly by using a strong stream of water.

Large clusters should be divided into smaller clusters so that the water can reach all surfaces of the grape.
