The Volover Rov has released the following Kashrus alert in regards to the recent controversy with worms found in sardines. This story was first brought to light in an article published by YWN on February 9th.
The following is the English portion of the latest statement from the Volover Rov:
Due to the many inquires regarding insect infestation in the stomach (not in the flesh) of the various “gefen” fish its important to again advise the following:
A. Sardines from “Portugal”, weather in oil or water, must first be opened and the inside cleaned out thoroughly. If one is not sure how to clean it, do not eat them.
B. The “skinless & boneless” sardines are OK.
C. The “bristling” sardines from Scotland, whether in water or oil, cannot be cleaned and may not be eaten.
D. The kippered snacks from Canada are OK.
E. All tuna is OK.
