    Does this mean the mushrooms need checking and not just soaking in soapy water and rinsing?

    The pack I bought yesterday has a Rav Efrati and Belz hechsher among others, while an identical packet in the shop had another hechsher and not the above hechsherim. Does the Efrati/Belz hechshered pack need checking too?

    Thank you.
