What's wrong with checking lettuce?

Do you check your lettuce; which method do you use?

Depends who you ask. Some people say you can, some people say you can't, and some people say that the people who say you can are wrong.

Fwiu, the broad consensus of kashrus experts/agencies is that thoroughly washing strawberries is no longer effective at removing bugs.

I personally don't understand how the "bodek" frozen whole ones are clean, but the do have a hechsher.

Some people don't just have issues - they have a year's subscription.

I heard that cutting off the leafs along with a portion of the fruit and then peeling off all of the peel and seeds is OK.
Not a baal taiva's pick, though...  :P

These kashrus authorities feel you can clean strawberries

Bodek makes sure to get crops which are not infested and early in the season.

I personally spoke to 2 very Choshuve Rabbanim, and both gave me the exact process of how to go about cleaning strawberries. Its a huge PITA, but its possible, and to say that its 100% not Kosher is just wrong!

You can just ask and it can be explained to you
