Since we are discussing wormy fruit, we should mention that the Acharonim state that eating wormy fruit is prohibited even according to the opinion that a mis’asek is free of all sin (see Imrei Binah on the Bach, end of siman 4; Darchei Teshuvah 84:28; Minchas Shlomo 6; Kovetz Shiurim, Pesachim, os 215 and 117, where he questions Rabbi Akiva Eiger about helam mikdash; Or Sameiach, Hilchos Geirushin 1:17; Eglei Tal, Meleches Kotzer 24:12 and Meleches Ofeh 33:3; and Chazon Ish, Horayos 15, 9).
