AKC Requirements for Checking Vegetables

Please note there is no one absolute and correct way to check vegetables for bugs. There are numerous acceptable methods that have proven to be effective including Star-K, OU, and CRC.

We highly recommend watching the tutorials online which show what the insects look like. Below are some basic guidelines.

Vegetables and other produce that may contain insects need to be washed and checked to confirm that they are insect free. The prohibition of eating insects is very serious as multiple Torah-level transgressions are possible if one consumes even a single insect. If there is a halachically significant chance that a particular type of fruit, vegetable or berry may contain insects, it must be checked. If the problem is considered halachically insignificant even if theoretically possible, checking is not required.

We highly recommend the use of a vegetable wash or light soap (salt and vinegar are not as effective) and a light box or thrip cloth to help one check for infestation. A magnifying glass can be helpful, but is not required.

Leafy Vegetables:

A. Leaf by Leaf Inspection: (Light boxes are helpful.)

Separate leaves.Soak in water. (Veggie wash or light soap is preferable.)Rinse.Make a complete, leaf- by- leaf inspection checking each leaf on both sides and opening the folds and remove any insects.

Floreted Vegetables and Fresh Herbs:

Wash thoroughly (preferably with veggie wash or light soap).Soak and agitate florets in a container.Check the water to see if it is insect-free. Use a thorough method, such as placing the water over a light box or pouring the water through a thrip cloth.Repeat if necessary.

Asparagus:

Shave down the floret at the asparagus tip.Remove the triangular parts along the side of the asparagus.(A potato peeler is recommended)Wash thoroughly. When prepared in this manner, special inspection is not necessary.

Scallions:

Do an internal and external inspection for any signs of infestation. Check inside tube and between leaves, as well as, the outside for leaf-miner trails.

Vegetables that Cannot be Checked:

Artichoke Hearts and Brussels Sprouts

Fruits:

Blueberries:

Remove all berries with foam. Wash remaining berries.

Strawberries:

Prepare a basin of soap solution, using at least two tablespoons of soap per gallon of water.Agitate the strawberries in the solution for 10-15 seconds.Let the strawberries soak for at least one minute in the solution.Rinse off each berry.Repeat steps 1-4 a second time.It is advisable to remove the tops.

Dried Fruits:

Some dried fruits may require checking. If one has visually inspected several fruits, cut them open, and found them to be free of infestation, then the rest can be used.

Frozen Vegetables: (with no additives and not cooked)

We do not recommend frozen Brussels sprouts, artichoke hearts, and asparagus because of insect infestation.It is preferred to buy frozen spinach, cauliflower, and broccoli with a hechsher. If they are not available with a hechsher they should be checked in water before use (see floreted vegetables above).

No checking required (unless suspected infestation):

Generally in the U.S., if the following are stored properly, they don’t require checking:

Alfalfa sproutsBeansBean sproutsFlourNutsPastaRaisinsRice

However, if one is concerned due to a visible sign of infestation, lack of cleanliness, or product has been around a long time, then one should check for insects.
