I thought those (handful) of super kosher restaurants in NYC that said they were under rabbinical supervision were certifying that the animal was handled properly from birth to slaughter?

Are they only certifying that they were slaughtered and then prepared in kosher fashion?

They are only certifying that the animal was shechted properly and that the animal was healthy at time of slaughter. That's it. Since geese that produce fois gras and veal that are tortured to produce white veal can't possibly be healthy, they are have been deemed not kosher from the get-go.

The issue of tza'ar ba'alei chayim is a valid one. I'm curious to see if this issue develops any traction in the Frum world.

Veal crates have been illegal in the EU for around 10 years now.

Fois gras production is illegal in most of Europe, not France obviously.

I thought you would. He brings up some very valid Kashrus issues that I hope make it through to the certification agencies.
