KASHRUS ALERT: B&G Gherkins Infestation

The Star-K Kosher has released a Kashrus Alert notifying the community of an insect infestation of some lots of B&G Gherkins.

The affected lots, printed on the side of the lid, have been identified so far are:

  • #25021 – Best By Feb 25 2023
  • #09031 – Best By Mar 09 2023
  • #24861 – Best By Jun 24 2023

These lots should not be used.

“It is unclear at this time how many other lots may be affected,” the Star-K wrote. “We will be sure to issue updated alerts as warranted.”

In the meanwhile, consumers of other lots are advised to slice open each gherkin to check for possible infestation.
