apparently not so objective... There are products marked as Mehadrin by various hashgachos in Israel that  wouldn't pass a kosher by national agencies in the US.

You gotta first understand how the system works.
There are certifiers in the US which do absolutely nothing other than collect a check.

They don't even make sure the item has a national hechsher?
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
