yydl, while you are right in that there are hundreds of acceptable hashgachos, you have to admit that OU definitely certifies the majority (or at least the plurality) of certified mass-produced products on the American market. – Tzvi Jan 23 '11 at 0:24

I live in St. Louis, and I'm pretty sure that the O-V is universally accepted here, for what it's worth. Here's contact info: ovkosher.org/a/contact – Isaac Moses Jan 20 '11 at 15:34
