Weeding our raster images

I'm working on a SVG map of the United States, with separate paths for each of the fifty states, along with various state icons (flags, etc.). My file size suddenly shot up from about 250K to 1.5 MB.

 

I'm wondering if I might have accidentally included a raster image in my project. Is there a way to highlight raster images, or do I just have to close one layer at a time, saving it as a SVG and checking the file size until I find the culprit?

Ah, I tried that and I found a second problem image - a .png that I forgot to trace. Thanks.

Weird, I just found the problem file. It's an Illustrator file I purchased from Adobe! It's File # 194709731. It added more than 3 MB to my SVG file size.

 

However, I'd still like to know if there's a way to detect raster images (or bloated Illustrator files) for future reference.

 

Thanks.
