If frozen vegetables have a hechsher I rely on, does that mean they have been checked for bugs?

This depends on the policies of the certifying agency. For some agencies, the hechsher means merely that the vegetables have no additives that pose Kosher concerns although the product itself my still require checking. For others, such as the OU, the hechsher means that the product has been established to be acceptable and should require no checking on the part of the consumer. Call the agency for details regarding their policies.

Kosher
Literally means "fit." Commonly used to describe foods which are permitted by Jewish dietary laws, but is also used to describe religious articles (such as a Torah scroll or Sukkah) which meet the requirements of Jewish law.
