    This thread’s title is not kosher.

    Corn is kosher.

    Bugs are not.

    Anyone know if there is any update on the issue of corn on the cob being infested? Is it still a problem? Is it a worldwide problem now?

    Corn on the cob gets stuck in your teeth anyway, which makes it disgusting. (SG)

    Corn on the cob is used as a euphemism for something else secret. If you aren’t supposed to know, they just tell you it isn’t on the menu because the mashgiach said so.

    Insanity can explain almost anything.

    I had corn on the cob, I think about 2 weeks ago. It was pretty good.

    Also had some cherries that we picked in the Golan, too.

    I happen to like little bugs.

    Ty Cobb was an anti semite and racist. Perhaps they feel his cousin Corn On The shares the same sentiments so wont serve it in a kosher establishment.

    “Corn is not suitable for human consumption anyway. It’s animal fodder.”

    Corn (maize) has been eaten by humans for thousands of years.

    “Corn is not suitable for human consumption anyway. It’s animal fodder.”

    So are oats and barley. So I guess you avoid cheerios and cholent.

    Animals eat most human foods.

    Animals eat most human foods.

    Some animals eat most humans as food.

    If animals would eat most humans, the majority of humans would no longer exist.

    The majority of humans do no longer exist. How many people are alive now, and how many do you think have been alive in all time?

    Actually, even by your own calculations you may be wrong, but only current humans count as humans.

    will the corn from my garden be kosher? I have a sign up near the stalks asking bugs to leave the property.

    Are the letters small enough for the bugs to read?

    lol guys

    Seriously, I never heard of this until recently. Is it really an issue? Is it worldwide or just here?

    Is there a way to ensure that the corn is bug-free?

    Has any kashrus organization provided any guidelines in this matter?

    According to the Star-K, you just remove the husk and rinse it well.
    The CRC says after peeling and rinsing, you should just check to see if you notice any bugs.

    Kof K says the same.

    COR Canada says you need to check the water it was boiled in for insects by pouring it over a shmata and checking the shmata.

    The South African Beis Din doesn’t allow it.

    Many Israeli hechsherim don’t allow it.

    Any natural food is “not kosher” until you clean it and check for bugs. It would be rather hard for humans to eat raw corn on the cob.

    Sweet corn is actually quite easy to eat raw.
