Is it necessary to wash cranberries before using when they are purchased frozen?

Cranberries are pre-washed before being commercially bagged for shipping and may be used as they come from the sealed bag. However, if the bag has perforations or air holes in it, it would be a good precautionary measure to wash berries before preparation.
