Canning -- Pickled and Fermented Foods

Did a consumer need to throw out sauerkraut that was covered with cheesecloth that had flies land on it?

Rating: 0

He did not need to throw it out if he heat processed it after fermentation was complete. The heating would kill any microorganisms that might be in the larvae or the live bug.
