do frozen blueberries need a hechsher?
From the CRC "Frozen blueberries, without any kosher sensitive ingredients added are acceptable without certification. Organic frozen blueberries are only recommended if being pureed"
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

it's not the freezing process. It's the prior washing.

The washing process doesn’t meet star-k standards.

Do sun dried tomatoes need to have a hechsher on it? The ingredients are sun dried tomatoes, salt, potassium sorbate, citric acid, glucose, and sulfur dioxide.

Also is AMC popcorn from the theaters kosher? is this all locations? Difference for ashkenazim vs sefardim?

I'm looking for an Uncle Moishe style kids album that can be played during the three weeks. - appropriate for a two-three year old.
Any Ideas?
Uncle Moishy.

Is there a reason to be makpid/meikel on kids music during 3 weeks/sefira?

They don't know how to mourn and are not at a level of chinuch for this.

Sorry should have been clearer: Is it a question for adults to be around/turn it on?

no clue regarding the tomatoes or popcorn but one thing is certain: the movie playing in the theater must have a hechsher.

Thanks. Just saw this morning אגרות משה או"ח חלק ד סימן כ"א ד' "ויש להחמיר גם לקטנים שהגיעו לחינוך מאחר שאבילות דרבים הוא". Although if they're listening to uncle moishy it's probably not הגיע לחינוך so quite possibly R Moshe and R Felder are talking about different age groups.

Why was this never shown to me? This is amazing

Are there any similar pdfs? / is there one list that compiles all the lists together?

I was told you can generally rely on the ingredients (assuming you know which ingredients are dairy) but there are exceptions where it will be real dairy even if it does not state
