Boiled Water with Ants

I didn’t know until after I had boiled the water in my electric kettle, but there were some ants that had gotten inside it. Does this render the kettle not kosher?

Answer:

No, there is no problem with the kettle.

The reason for this is that the ants are ma’us (disgusting) and their taste is inherently pagum, so that there isn’t any problem with the kettle.

Best wishes.
