Seriously?

Is Lakewood such a rural and dispersed community, with poor communication? Did any Rabbonim or local Kashrus organizations put out an alert that people who care about Kashrus shouldn't purchase blackberries, raspberries, or any other fruit or vegetable that is considered muchzak and is very difficult to check/rid of infestation?

Lakewood is not what is used to be. If the rabbonim put out an alert it would have to cover a good chunk of many of the grocery store produce aisles- Andy Boy Romaine,Broccoli, and literally dozens of produce items, some of which a consumer could conceivably clean if they took a course, but in practice will almost always be consumed in a manner that even the OU would not accept, and other items that are almost impossible to clean properly according to any mainstream kashrush agency.

Yeah, the stores may tell you that you can technically filter and use the juice; go take an informal survey of the purchasers and see how many plan on using the product that way....

The rabbonim sometimes have to pick their battles....

And thatís just the retail scene. Ask anyone involved in the restaurant scene ( Iím talking in general, not Lakewood) and they will tell you that there is a huge gap between theory and practice; many kashrus agencies have official protocol for vegetable checking and washing in restaurants under their supervision that in practice are routinely violated. Often the mashgiach is a kid who is getting paid a pittance to check all the vegetables as well as do general restaurant work. There are often way more vegetables to be processed than are practicaly able to be processed in the time frame provided. I know someone in charge of supervising masgichim for restaurants under a hashgacha in NJ who has story after story. He has caught restaurants with batches of vegetables that they claimed were checked that turned out the staff lied and just dumped in a bin for use. They get a reprimand but the agency that he works for wonít drop them for various cheshbonos. He tells me he takes no responsibility; he only works for the agency and is doing hos job. He would not eat at most of the places and privately tells people who ask him the same...

We ranted and raved about this in the seasons thread.
They sold raspberries, balackberries etc

#goodriddence
This attitude is one of the reasons why some well known Jewish communties have turned into a heaping sewage pit of undesirable excrement under the guise of religion.
Seriously?

So CBC is questioning a עובד ע'ז about selling raspberries?

Not everyone is like you and makes everything a fight.

IF Rabbonim believe this is a serious Kashrus issue and a michshol, all they have to do is publicize the issues with said berries. If the עולם cares, they won't buy, and I would presume that Bingo won't carry it (just like I presume they don't carry Hebrew National, because there are no buyers).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Rabbonim are all unanimous that these cannot be eaten. That they are a serious kashrus issue, and that there is a michshol.

There are no rabbonim who hold otherwise. There are no frum hechsherim who say otherwise.

These are the facts.


Now with these facts in hand, how do *you* feel about stores selling to the frum community selling them?

it's interesting that the Boston Area kosher stores cannot sell items deemed uncheckable but in Lakewood all the stores sell them

And that is exactly the problem. People see it in the store, assume it can't be that bad because Bingo is selling it and " someone IS buying it, or they wouldn't carry it"and therefore assume that they can also buy it.
So basically entrapping the ill informed to assume it's ok.
And here stands the main issue. With this and with the Mezuzos.

When did we stop teaching our children that YOU need to make sure the food is kosher before YOU eat it. YOU need to make sure your Mezuzos are kosher before YOU use them.
Since when do we rely on business people trying there hardest to earn a living and feed there families to dictate to us what is kosher and what isn't, what is on "our standard" and what isn't?

What difference does it make how I feel about it? The question is what, if anything, should be done about it?

A friend told me that in his shul the cell phone situation was getting out of hand. Initially he thought of signs and regulations, but instead he began a series of shiurim about Davening. He said that was more effective than anything else he has seen in curbing the cell phone in shul issues.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

yes, it is a serious issue that people will buy and eat something just because some purchasing manager who they know nothing about stocked it for a store.

Yes, these are the real issues. Still, it's utterly astounding that there are so many people like this that it's financially worthwhile for Bingo to stock them. I was SHOCKED when I saw them there.
