Information from Star-K USA
There are reports in a number of cities that infestation is being found in brown rice. Consumers are reminded that STAR-K always recommends checking brown rice for insects prior to use, regardless of the hechsher on the package. The reason for this is because brown rice is especially susceptible to becoming infested due to improper storage, which is beyond the control of the hashgacha.
