I find it hard to believe a Rav would allow a Jew to do this. Perhaps there was something lost in transmission. If a goy owned the strawberries when they were ground then indeed the bugs that may have been there are batul. (That's why you can but smuckers etc) maybe this is what your Rav was referring to.
That is not true. Since it is not certain that there are bugs it is not bitul lichatchila that is what a very accepted orthodox rabbi writes in a sefer called Pri Megadim

I don't recall exactly but I think when dealing with a miut hamatzi it is still a problem.

they are there. They do not have a hechsher. They are grown naturally. People are entitled to buy as many as they like and they can spray, soak, wash, check, and rinse at home.

Do you think its ok to sell Raspberry's?

Obviously I understand if you couldn't care less.
I could tell you they have a lobster tank and you would shrug..


Just to set the record straight, I was genuinely impressed with the store, the checkout process was a dream, and ime the prices were just fine.
The only issue is the tight parking.
