Leon International Foods (Middle East) Pita, Goji Berries, AKC Classes

The AKC no longer certifies Leon International Foods (Middle East) Pita sold in their store at 4000 Pleasantdale Road, Atlanta GA 30340. Products that have an OU on the bag are OU certified.

Goji Berry products may have a concern of tolayim (Bugs).The OU recommends that consumers check goji berries carefully, even if certified by the OU, in the following manner:

Step 1. Place the goji berries in sealed clear plastic container with lukewarm water.

Agitate vigorously.

Place berries in colander under a heavy spray of lukewarm water from the sink while shaking the berries.

Step 2. Place berries again in a sealed container with lukewarm water.

Agitate vigorously.

Step 3. Place the container on top of a lightbox and inspect water for insects.

The container should not be overloaded. Only a modest amount of berries should be placed into the container at a time. Repeat process until no insects are found.

Alternatively, for step 3:

Place a 50 micron mesh cloth between two colanders

Place berries in colander under a heavy spray of lukewarm water from the sink while shaking the berries.

Filter the water in container through the colanders.

Remove and inspect the mesh cloth on a light box.

Repeat process until no insects are found.

The AKC will be presenting two classes on Kashrus, on February 18th and February 25th
