 Albeit time consuming and possibly hard, they are 100% possible to clean. Stop making a big stink about stupidity. Im personally running a campaign to have them stop selling fresh meat as if you eat it without preparing properly you can get very sick.

strawberries? Funny , even R' Moshe Vaye permits it after following his wash method 3 times.
Yudel had strawberries at greenwalds pesach program under his hashgacha. (It's keday to have mashgichim who previously worked for yudel, this way you know when he's not only wrong but also a hypocrite.)

GG carries the fresh rasberries too. Last time I looked into it the majority of the mainstream orthodox hechsheirim have their methods for the strawberries but tell you to steer clear of the rasberries so I'm pretty uncomfortable seeing them on the shelf in GG and Seasons. Makes me want to double check any other products I'm buying there. Haw to I know they are up to even basic kashrus standards if that isn't the case with the produce?

+1 very disturbing to buy meat, fish etc from a business that clearly at minimum is just oblivious to major kashrus issues.

Don't recommend doesn't mean they don't allow. I'm not saying a simple rinse would do it, but your making it sound like they are selling pig. They are entirely halachikly permitted to sell them, stop making Judaism more restrictive then it is.

It just is huh?

Since you present such a comprehensive argument,  we'll all just take your word for it.

I don't recall posting that it is "halachically prohibited to sell".

Bottom line this is your justification.
- Do you think that it is possible that someone shopping in a frum store might not be as aware as you about how difficult theses are to check?

I'm not sure that's worse then you stating outright that you have no idea about this subject and then proceeding to bash them.

Not the establishments issue.

Just for the record, I only "bashed" them in this post about my general discomfort  based on the rasperries. - For the most part I have tried to stick to the issue, which was trying to justify the sale of them.  If you can successfully explain this, there is no issue.

BTW, From a pure business perspective they are making a mistake IMHO. This leads me to believe that they actually don't realize.. I guess in their other locations these products sell well...

Yeah he also served edible orchids which he deems highly infested.
He'll tell you that only he know how to check..

I happen to agree that there should be some notification or something regarding certain produce items
But to make the jump that the agencies certifying these stores know nothing and we shouldn't eat their meat is ridiculous
