Dried Fruit need Hechsher

Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

Does dried fruit whose sole ingredient reads "granny smith apples" need a heksher?

Its good to seek a Hechsher for any processed food as food technology is so advanced today and even whom which look as simple foods contain more than they say (oils?); similarly the process of the drying may be problematic (ovens?)
Therefore even though these foods dont seem to have any Halachic issues, one should not consume them unless bare a Hechsher or noted by a reliable Kashrut authority as eatable without a need of a Hechsher.

I want to ask a question related to this answer
