Saw this on a blog I recently came across (looks like Hamasbia ex-TLV):



They want to make sure people aren't קובע סעודה if they make a מזונות.
How much are they putting in there?

They had some serious issues in the past. Might I remind you erev Pesach a few years back?
Looking back at old posts on a WhatsApp kashrus group, it seems like RCC adheres to OU standards, however, they did have a few cases where Kashrus fraud was perpetrated under their watch.
True, but they are in the cRc list and any list I've ever seen. I prefer those hechshers to random ones in Brooklyn that have no information online about them.
They upped their protocols significantly after Doheny, if that's what you're referring to. Their standards were always high.
Every frum yid in Los Angeles is reliant on them to some degree, and one has to be careful with how they phrase things.

Factually incorrect
Example? There is a tremendous interreliance between kashrus agencies. OK Restaurants use RCC meat and veggies. Etc.

Are you insinuating that

Every frum yid in Los Angeles

eats in restaurants?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

He'll never understand  :)
The comments on this post show the insanity of the world today. The only thing these people care about is the wrapping is hurting the environment... Lucky them, they must have so little issues in life to have the brain capacity for this stupidity!
