I heard a rumor that the Romanian Sausage company in Chicago (home of the best salami ever) is now available for delivery. Can anyone confirm or deny this? If they have a website, it's very well hidden.

      Limited to those two items, unsliced salamis and salami sticks.

          Nope, but if Romanian can't sell nationally because they lack USDA certification then I don't think it's legal to have a commercial venture doing that, even if it's independent. Someone's asking for trouble here.

            You hit the nail on rthe head; "commercial venture"
            I beleive that the person doing this is a private individual and i think that this opens a legal loop hole which allows him to do it.
            Any legal beagles out there?

              Once you're putting yourself out there on the internet transacting interstate business there's no "private individual" exemption. If it's a business, it's a business. I certainly can't imagine that Romanian would approve of such a venture (it says "authorized" but I'd be surprised that Romanian would agree to such a business) and with respect to food safety concerns - let alone kashruth, this is a a huge can 'o worms.

                It certainly opens a can of worms as you said and I wouldn't touch it, but until he gets caught everything seems legal!
