i heard it a few years ago

in the beginning, they used to advertise that r' zeritzky said it was good, but they havent done so in a very long time.

i would reckon it's no longer the case

Rabbi Kuber told me a couple months back, that he's heard they have a very good Mashgiach. But he's sure they use products he wouldn't recommend (I. E.Aguda, and C"S Petach Tikvah) And Rabbanut Mehadrin Yerushalayim today is not much of a Hashgacha, so you are dependent solely on the Mashgiach.
I was told that R' Kuber isn't  against C"S P"T as a whole, rather each product needs its own OK.

FTR The Rabbanim checked out Agas Vitapuach as well, and found quite a few things with questionable Hashgachos. Secondly, one of the Rabbanim felt that KFI was causing a Michshol, being that people were viewing it as an approval, instead of just an informative as to what is going on in these restaurants, and therefore felt they should close.

Why do you say that? Now that we know that there are issues each person respectively should check on his own.

Has anyone considered setting up a KFI type org in the US to ensure ppl are aware of what they're eating?

People here (US) are too complacent, probably bec. they lived their whole life in one place.
When people go to a new place they start asking questions to find out the basics,
which doesn't usually happen in your hometown.

I think they are trying to keep things quiet,  until they have something concrete set up.

I don't think it was profitable. They're probably looking for a way to make profitable.

Oh, shut up.

I guess it's true what they say - no good deed goes unpunished...

People will always stick up and believe only the best intentions, if the people involved are from their crowd.

I have no clue on this.
