Terras-garden-has a serious issue with infestation-They just can't get it going right.

http://www.satprnews.com/2017/02/17/terras-garden-is-only-company-in-the-world-with-full-selection-of-kosher-products/

Kosher salad is defined as 100% clean from infestation.-Terras Garden brand "sorry to say, can not make that claim".

Facts-There are many salad companies that claim all of their products are kosher, 100% infestation free.

Positive and kosher Garden brands are the ones that may rightfully claim their products are 100% insect free.

Update: Why you should use "only" the positive or kosher garden brands

Bodek,  Kihalacha,  Pardes,  Kosher taste,  Andy Boy,  Dole,  Terras Garden, etc 
are all infested product regardless of the sticker or Hashgocha. Some other companies have an issue that they do not check enough samples, therefore sometimes they will be infested. They also have an issue of defining "miut-Hamutzui".

The Positive and Kosher Garden brands are always free of infestation, but their packaging doesn't always keep the product fresh long enough. (perhaps, insect protein maintains freshness?)馃槉

Positive brand has the hashgocha of Rav Moshe Vaye  who is considered the worlds' expert on infestation .讘讚讬拽转 转讜诇注讬诐  Rav Vaye lives in Eretz Yisroel and is in daily contact with his trained expert Rav Dovid Goldstein.

Update: Lakewood "DON'T BUY"- Price drop of $50,000.00 - $100,000.00 purchasers of NEW construction duplexes, SF homes-

Lakewood rentals are in a glut stage. Don't count on any rental income to support your overpaid new house.

Chevra, just watch BMG get their 1200 residential units at cedar bridge and the price of Lakewood housing will be in a freefall.

Sit and wait it out? or go to Jackson, Howell, Toms River.

Investors, purchasers-don't buy now W-A-I-T - IT'S MONEY IN YOUR POCKET better than hedge funds

From the Grape-vine: New duplexes and single family homes have been drastically reduced by $50-100,000.00 or more.

The asking price is still up in the sky but ..........

Some of the reasons;

Overpriced due to market demand.

Basement rentals are at a glut.

Over building.

Jackson, Toms River, etc are realistic options as a first choice. Larger homes, larger property, no sardine can feeling, no traffic issues, etc

Some that have deposits may be looking to get out. While others are re-negotiating the price.

Birdsboro Poultry "Li'Mehadrin"- is at the top in their kashrus standards

We were asked by Rabonim and individuals to see if the Birdsboro poultry plant is considered Li’Mehadrin for those that are makpid on kashrus Li’Mehadrin? Following is a concise short report.

     The plant is located in Birdsboro Pennsylvania.  It’s a two and a half hour drive from Brooklyn, Monroe, and Monsey, NY. It’s a medium size plant, processing approximately 30,000 chickens @ day. A smaller plant that processes fewer chickens is not necessarily an advantage. In a larger volume plant they will usually have an extra shoichet, an extra Mashgiach, etc. for the just in case. The larger plants can afford to check for 爪讜诪转 讛讙讬讚讬谉 and other issues.

     We visited the plant “unannounced” on Tuesday  驻专砖转 讘讗 转砖注"讝.  We were at the plant for some 7 hours. They welcomed the visit; no one seemed uncomfortable with an unannounced visit by one that is very familiar with Shechitas, etc. The Chasam Sofer writes that Shechitas should be inspected unannounced. Reb Moshe, Z”L stated to me that Shechitas that require of me or anyone else appointments prior to a visit are suspect. There are Shechitas that require appointments or they do not allow any visitors at all.
