Question:

Dear Rabbonim,

We recently harvested a clementine tree and it was later discovered that some of the clementines contained maggots.
Since checking every orange is quite labour intensive is one able to squeeze and strain the orange juice, or should the entire batch be thrown out?

Thank you in advance

Answer:

You may squeeze and strain the orange juice and then it is alright, the strainer though has to be either with a sifter that is good enough to catch any bugs in flour, a thick cloth, or a coffee filter.
