comment Is boiling water poured over frozen berries enough vs. bacteria?
Thank you Galactic Cowboy, that was pretty much what I wanted to know. This is my first post here and I realize that I should have formulated the question like this: IF berries have a health issue through bacteria or the like, is pouring boiling water over them enough, or do I need to boil them through. :)

I live in Denmark, though the berries can often be from other countries as we import a lot. But say the berries DO have bacteria, would the washing in boiling water be enough?

I do not know. But I remembered a news program where they warned that raspberries contained some kind of germs/bacteria that could be dangerous. Also I've been raised with the "need to pour boiling water over" frozen berries. The question is an aim to clarify the risk of not fully boiling the berries before blending, if any.
