Infestation in Fresh Garlic

7 Teves 5774
December 10, 2013

According to Rabbi Moshe Vaye, insect infestation has been detected in heads of fresh garlic.

As such, one should separate the pieces and wash well before using and one should refrain from cooking an entire head of garlic without separating it.

See the rabbi’s letter.    שום – DEC 2013

    לכן יש להפריד את שיני השום, לקלפם ולשטוף אותם היטב לפני השימוש.

    I correct the translation:
    As such, one should separate the pieces, [peel them], and wash well before using.
