Update:Kashrus Alert: Peeled Garlic- (Sabra?)



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
Sabra Salads is certified by the OK,check if they use Christopher Ranch peeled garlic.

This is geferlich. We were using this brand because it is one of the only kosher ones that does NOT come from China.

The Chinese ones are not infested with bugs? (They may be infested with toxins like so many other things from China al kol ponim)

The toxins kill the mites. Might be better.

(Note: having done business with, and been there, i must emphasize, the chinese are not to be trusted with anything.)
