What was the rush? Most kosher consumers had done their passover purchase of meat & poultry at the time it was revealed the scandal. What was the rush to find a purchaser? A few weeks down it could have been bought at a fire sale price. No reason to reward the owner with making anything more than fire sale dollars.
There are other kosher distributors in the LA area. They may be certified by RCC's competition, is that the reason for the rush?
The Halachic ruling of not requiring to kosherize the utensils is very questionable at best based on the facts that could have been known at the time. see
The RCC claims they are a not making any profit with their certification. Therefore it would be beneficial to hand over the reins (at no charge) to another agency that subscribes to the motto of חשדהו וחשדהו especially when there were many red flags that should have been picked up.
The RCC says they will bring in outsiders to do a forensic accounting to see who's at fault. The RCC is going to bring in the OU where Rabbi Belsky is the prominent halacha authority, & he is the father in law of Rechnitz the purchaser. The RCC says they'll also bring a chasidesh one to investigate.
When one wants to be successful in kashrus certification, he must be very observant in
