It's the brands specified.

They specifically also mentioned that they have not looked at any other brands, so noone should infer that they are ok.
LOL
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Unfortunately there are many naive people out there who assume that a kosher supermarket actually is what they imply to be...

Their naivete is their own problem, not the store's. They shouldn't be doing the shopping.

The stores shouldn't consider themselves kosher.

I disagree. For example if there is an item that has a so so hechsher the store is not required to post that. A customer is required to look at things.
If you dont know how to follow instructions (have a rabbi to ask thing to) then its your own problem.

Correct if it's a so so product. Not if it's agreed by all the it's impossible to clean that fruit.

That's a bold statement and factually false.
If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

i'm not getting into the debate about what you hold. I'm just pointing out that you made a generalization that is wrong

There are those who permit it. How about banning all stores that sell bagels with cream cheese and lox, because there are many who don't eat fish with cheese...

Great idea start a new thread (or maybe put it in the "where have you been banned from thread)

Nobody just "permits" it.

The OU recommends a certain bedika. If this bedika is positive for bugs there is no cleaning process available. Supposedly this bedika will show infestation 99% of the time.

For this reason the OU doesn't allow rasperries and blackberries in facilities with their hechsher.
