The Star-K advised their establishments not to use [OK certified] Christopher Ranch pre-peeled garlic. (unless washed very thoroughly)
The Christopher Ranch brand (OK certified) of peeled Garlic was found to be infested with mite insects. Therefore one should refrain from using that brand. Many caterers, restaurants, dips, food service are using this brand.
Check your caterers, restaurants, dips, food service, if they are using this brand don't purchase from them.
We contacted the kosher certifiers and they are of the opinion that "times are lean ($$$), so they can't afford to remove their certification".
Note: They are "muchzak, nir'eh li'ainayim, more than miut ha'mutzui".
The guidelines for infestation and the OK's posek is Rabbi Ekstein, Belzer Dayan
