For one thing, that it was not sprayed with treife oil or fats.  If there
are dates which one *must* inspect for insects, then the hechsher would
also be telling you that this is not the case with these dates.

Zev Sero               A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and
zev at sero.name          substantial reason' why he should be permitted to
                        exercise his rights. The right's existence is all
                        the reason he needs.
