Adding fruit to the secondary

Have a recipe at calls for 6lbs of frozen raspberries to be placed in the secondary. How do I ensure the raspberries are sterile when I put them in?

I wouldn't worry about sanitizing the berries. Just thaw them and add them to the secondary. Since they were packed commercially the berries were cleaned and packaged under sanitary conditions. That's the way I've done in the past and have never had any problems.
