We wrote to them twice re: if their meat is from USA, Uruguay, etc.
We received no response. They finally responded that it's USA.
We further asked is it all USA?, How about the Deli, Provissions, processed, etc? No response!
They also have Israeli fruits, etc which may have an issue of Trumah, Maasrois, Orlah, etc . There is also being sold fresh herbs & other items that have an infestation issue e.g. dried figs, etc. The consumer can't be expected to check those items.

Who paid the Mashgichim? Straus. (why?)
How many mashgichim were paid? Only 1 full, 1 part timer. Was that sufficient? NO.
Hashgocha received no compensation only some free milk for the kolel.
Were all of the veterinary procedured cows removed? No. Why not?
Was milk brought in from other unsupervised dairies as well (up to 49%)? Why?
