Please be advised that COR has discovered some infestation on table grapes from Peru and Chile. We have found a particular species of mites that are very small (about half of a millimeter) and hard to detect. While both factual and halachic research is ongoing we advise that grapes from Peru and Chile be washed carefully and thoroughly by using a strong stream of water. Large clusters should be divided into smaller clusters so that the water can reach all surfaces of the grape.
Future updates will be communicated after more data is compiled.
