I'd like to see a resource developed which transparently compares the standards of the various kashrut agencies. Just like I can retrieve an incredibly in-depth comparison chart from Wikipedia regarding my choice of word processing programs, I would love to have a similar comparison of kashrut agencies. For instance, a comparison of standards regarding:
- Pat Akum
- Operation on Shabbat and holidays
- Frequency of supervised visits
- Bug checking
The Jewish community should challenge its kashrut agencies to make their policies clear and transparent.
QUESTION: What are the (stated? verifiable?) standards held by various kashrut agencies? OU, OK, CRC....
