There is an OU on Raspberry preserves. Not ground up.

They could be cleaned very well by machine first.
The discussion here is about fresh.

Checked out seasons .feels like five towns..
Anyway. The Mexican strawberies, Raspberry's and cauliflower is inexcusable.
even dovid Goldstein says that you can peel strawberries so even the biggest machmirim hold there are ways of partaking in strawberries.

After reading their directions it's not really hard to understand why not.

those are cooked so even if they are wrong to give a hechsher, you can still eat them

Honestly I don't really know. I'm just assuming that there are ways to clean berries. Maybe not lettuce?

BTW , R' Vaye was at the askOU summer seminars 2 years ago, and he told R' Fuchs (OU) that if you wash and brush the strawberries 3 times is soapy water and don't find Big's using his shmate method you can eat them

FWIW, I just found worms in 2 of the 5 raw almonds I checked. I bought them at a large supermarket with a fast turnaround. This is the first time I soaked them and took off the skin. No sign with the skin on. A tiny hole with the skin off. I usually just check 5, then pop them in my mouth. Yuck.

This

That is way too small to see. Note: It isn't the dimple, it's inside the dimple apparently.  That isn't a problem.

If it were black you would see it for sure.

If it were 6 feet long, it would eat me.

By which I mean, I don't think halacha recognizes that if it glowed in the dark it would be more visible.  As it is, the thing is not visible without a magnifying glass, so it's muttar.

The poskim today discuss clear definitions of visible. - Don't remember if it is 1 millimeter or something else. Il look around.
