Infestation in Organic Produce

Does organic food mean it does not have bugs?
Are almond butter and organic nutella free of bugs?

Answer:

Organic food generally uses less or no pesticides, and often poses a greater incidence of bugs. The food needs to be checked and cleaned well, based on the incidence of bugs of that food. Search this site for a guide on checking and cleaning fruits and vegetables.

Butters and spreads which have no pieces or chunks of the original food pose no problem of bugs.
