Halacha - Raisin Infestation
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

I do not have any inside information on this specific subject, but I think it is safe to assume that they do not inspect each individual raisin separately. Presumably, based on the methods of cleaning them and perhaps checking a sample, they fell confident that the statistical probability of discovering a bug is below the Halachic threshold. They cannot guarantee you will never find a single bug, but they are stating that there is no obligation to suspect they are present. They have become Halachically equivalent to say carrots, which while on occasion do have worms, need not be checked.
