    I guess that's one way around the bishul akum issue - don't cook anything!

        Was looking for this on the IKC site; not only do I not see it but the majority of IKC clients in Philly seem to have been removed from their list! Like Mi Lah, Blackbird, Su Xing. Is this a glitch or did these places lose/change certifications? The NYC list seems significantly slimmed down as well.

          I spoke to Rabbi Schwarcz and he is updating his site so it is incorrect at this time. Not only are all these places under IKC, but they have more places than ever in the US and Internationally.
