I was told from one the Vaadim in South Florida its not recommended at this time.
kinda looks like a magnifier glass?
Whats the product, maybe it doesn't need a hecsher at all?

Does anyone know a square with a Large K and the letters ORC going from top to bottom inside the square (on the right side of the K) is good?

(for some reason I can't upload a pic)

I know that hechsher. I've heard conflicting answers whether its reliable or not. I believe it comes from a Rabbi in San Francisco if I'm not mistaken.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.

keep in mind that there are many products which are ok even without a hechsher. So it would depend what the product is.

The famous answer to describe an unreliable hechsher: "It is a good hechsher for water".

I know there has been talk of starting a Kashrus Master Thread. I searched and couldn't find a thread dedicated to Kashrus. I choose GD over JS to keep this thread civil and informative.

I have a question about a Kashrus orginization in Mexico called ka-kosher, link to their website. See below for a picture of their stamp/seal. It says on the website that the Rav Hamachshir is R' Chaim Cohen, a graduate of BMG and used to work for the OK. HAs anyone heard of him/them? Are they reliable?

Back when I worked from a kashrus agency I was told by a member of one of the big agencies that it is not recommended. I wont say in public the reason he gave but suffice it to say it was a valid enough reason not to trust the guy.

I emailed the cRc (chicago) and this is their response

That certificationís standards do not meet those of the cRc and therefore that certification is NOT recommended

Thanks guys.  I guess I'll return the San Marcos Chipotle Peppers in Adobo sauce. It was the only brand with some semblance of a Hashgocha. Does anyone know of another brand with a reliable Hashgocha?
