Do you really need to refrigerate raisins?

It says you should refrigerate after opening on the box. My mom doesn't and I have never put a dried fruit in the fridge other than really good dates/figs? Does anyone really refrigerate their raisins?

One time I wish I did. We had a meal moth infestation and those suckers LOVE the raisins.

We eat pounds of raisins and we never put them in the refrigerator. However, we seal the bag of raisins very tightly in its bag so that the raisins maintain their moisture. This works just fine for our 2.25 lb bag (which takes us ~4-6 weeks to consume).

The only reason I'd keep mine in the fridge is that raisins are extremely toxic (as in potentially deadly) to dogs -- I know lots of dogs who can get into cupboards and none (yet) who can get into the fridge.
