However, the Torah said that when a trustworthy frum Yid testifies to facts that they witnessed, in certain cases we may consider that level of evidence sufficient.. One of those cases is where they said the box of cookies they purchased had an OU.
But random Akum do not have that Halachic level of believably and therefore you are not allowed to assume the food is Kosher.
Aside from that, even vegetables, when cooked in non-Kosher utensils can become non-Kosher, even though it would be totally OK for vegans.

Old thread but I can think of 3 big issues even for vegans:
1) non kosher non-mevushal wine.
2) produce from Israel that wasn't taken care of
3) bugs. Yes, vegans don't believe in eating bugs but if they don't know how to check, they'll end up eating them.
