If it walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck...
Regarding the actual issue, it sounds like one of the agencies in Mexico made a mistake. I'm not sure a local family in Mexico would have been better off if they relied on the same list.

Heard a rumor that a program in the USA closed in middle this year due to the chef tampering with the food.
Did this actually happen?

None of the local rabbis heard of it either.

Not sure why you feel the need to throw in your random assumptions about things that are totally inconsequential. Whether this is true or not has absolutely no bearing on anything that we should be discussing on this forum.

What makes you think that Sholom Bayis is inconsequential? I guess you must be talking from experience.

If that is inconsequential, what are the consequences of Pesach Program cancellations, scams and problems? Is it only money?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

You completely missed my point.

Bump. Any stories this year?
Well, this program closed down a couple weeks before yom tov. The other program in Newport Beach ended up doubling their guest list
Anyone have any knowledge of the CA program for this group? Was it well run? Did they take responsibility?
PM's welcome

Read the article. Seems like he's trying to deflect blame from the program owner and onto the property. I'm not buying it. Nothing he wrote there absolves the program owner in any way.

Geez. I realize the purpose of each of these is to warn people off the 'scammers', but how do either of them expect people to keep doing business with them? If your judgement is bad enough for these kinds of things to happen around you...
