Is there still problems with the bugs with corn on the cob?
Star K app says "remove peel and rinse"
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Is ok to do that before I put in the microwave, or would I need to do that after the heat cooked/baked it?
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

My understanding is to do that while it's raw

Thanks for posting.

Most interesting part of that list is Israel. Never heard of Seckbac, but some other major ones aren't there.

A great list, but make sure to have it handy if there is no wifi, as the internet doesn't work either i suppose.  ;)

Download the PDF.
Interestingly, a cursory look shows that PDF has some names (at least one) that aren't on the webpage list, and possible vice versa. For example, my friend Rabbi Havlin (I have no knowledge or comment about the quality of his hashgocho) of Frankfurt is on the PDF, but not on the list.

Also saw some other names on the PDF that don't appear on the list, that I would consider questionable.

Can't look now, but IIRC there's a last updated date on each

I have no idea. I don't work for the CRC or the COR.

Rabbi Felder is the chairman of the Rabbinical board.
Rabbi Adler is an administrator. Most of the hashgachos name an administrator as a contact since he is hands on.
