Yes,  they might have bugs.

(I'd you phrase it like that, the answer is yes.  What were you actually trying to ask?)

Mind boggling that he even needs to mention this!
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Not naarish. Cmiiw, but I'm pretty sure the ou says not to eat them whole, only blended

You're wrong.  The ou doesn't tell you to blend things under their hashgacha

Possibly. I once bought it and called a hashgacha and they said to blend it. I thought I had called the ou, but it may have been the star-k

The OU certifies that the commercial washing process is sufficient to remove bugs.

There is a chumra to not eat OU. It is a very widespread and accepted chumra, both in Israel amongst the yeshiva crowd, in the US mostly chassidim

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

From their website:

Quote
Kosher Michigan employs kosher supervisors (mashgichim) who are both Orthodox and Conservative.

You can also see videos of "Rabbi Jason" on that website. His haircut might be indicative...
