    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.

Some of the boxes have an OV on them which is the Vaad Hoeir of St. Louis

    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
