# 1198 Comb That Honeycomb?
Q. Does the COR certify the honeycombs sold at COR certified stores and if they do, are they actually visually inspected for bee parts ? And if there is a need for that inspection?

A. The question was forwarded to Rabbi Tzvi Heber, Director of Community Kosher, COR, who responded

Hi Rabbi Bartfeld:
Sholom Aleichem.
We do not grant certification to unfiltered honey due to the insect problem.
That said, we would allow our stores to sell the product and it would be up to consumers to check it, if necessary (similar to raw vegetables that require checking). We do not know whether it is common to see insect parts in unfiltered honey that is sold in the retail market.
 Best regards,
Tsvi Heber

As mentioned on the prior question, Horav Shlomo Miller's Shlit'a opinion is that you have to check for (if they are regularly there) and extract the insect parts if any that you can see, from the unfiltered honeycomb crushed before Shabbos. You can do so during Shabbos by using a spoon  and removing some of the honey with them. If none were visible, you are allowed to eat the honeycomb slice, even if you cannot check the inside of the honeycomb cells.

Rabbi A. Bartfeld as revised by Horav Shlomo Miller Shlit”a
