  1. This has been ongoing problem with this company.
    I called the company on many occasions regarding bug issues found in a few of their products.
    I hope the public will become more aware and the company resolves this matter immediately.

  2. Unfortunate whenever there’s a problem the company is on it right away situation now is that ONE SHIPMENT CAME IN they inspected the shipment and they found worms so the company put it on hold right away a few boxes might have slipped out so they put it on a recall for everybody to be careful when anybody calls in with a complaint Klein’s natural it’s taking everything seriously yes nuts and dried fruit are natural and they are prone to infestation they have the highest quality control inspecting every single shipment that comes in thanks for understanding

  3. No, Rebbeitzen, a low rate of infestation is not a problem. If something has a low rate of infestation one may eat it without checking, and just assume there were no insects.

  4. CLARIFICATION:
    1) Eating even one bug (dead or alive) is a very serious Torah prohibition. Almost always MULTIPLE prohibitions.
    2) Any food item known / expected to contain bugs (is considered muchzak and) may not be eaten until it is determined it is FREE of any concerns of infestation. This is accomplished either through a thorough visual inspection, or, in certain circumstances and under specific conditions, when something has been done to assure the item is clean.
    3) Any item which MAY be infested (e.g. it is known to contain bugs in between 10 – 50% of samples), must also be determined to be clean. Infestation in such items are considered a mi’ut ha’matzui.
    4) Any item whose expected infestation levels are LESS than 10% are considered halachically clean and don’t require inspection prior to eating. Infestation in these items is considered a mi’ut she’eino matzui.
