Nobody just "permits" it.

The OU recommends a certain bedika. If this bedika is positive for bugs there is no cleaning process available. Supposedly this bedika will show infestation 99% of the time.

For this reason the OU doesn't allow rasperries and blackberries in facilities with their hechsher.
Eta. Just did the OU bedika with Seasons blackberries.  - a couple of crawlers

Was that before or after cooking? Do they float free when you cook it?

So you want to say that every naive person walking into Seasons buying blackberries is getting it for jam?!

Most kosher supermarkets sell many things that some people eat and some people don't. The only supermarket I dont check for hechsherim or the such in is NPGS, where I know they would lable anything slightly questionable with signs or take it off the shelf.
I'm not who you think I am.

Check your premises
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

First of all please post your source. (Commercial may be a different process)
Second of all, that's a lame excuse.

We all know the sad truth. - in the other seasons locations the customers have no problem purchasing and rinsing rasperries for consumption. This is why it is part of their inventory chain, and ends up in Lakewood.

They wouldn't be selling them if noone bought them. - And there ain't that many old ladies makin jam.

This is the point of the thread. Which Rabbi permits the consumption of rasperries? Who buys these things??
This is not a minhag or Chumrah issue.

Even the strictest  heshsher allows it for jam as it's blended so it's botal.

-1 jam is not blended ime. Big chunks in there.
Reason is due to commercial washing system imho
