I have a set of about 12 china mugs that are used for meat. One of them was used for hot dairy accidentally. I put it aside but then someone else mixed it back in to the set. What is the status of the set?
Since they are now mixed together and there are more of the kosher ones than the one that is problematic, we say that it is botil and you may use all of the cups. It is not considered a chaticha hariuya l’hiskabed, or a choshiv item since the issur part is only a little bit of absorbed taste inside the cup, which by now is no longer a ben yomo.
