“Sealed” kosher bread


B”H Is it ok to eat kosher bread, wrapped in a twist tie type of closure, that is delivered by a non-jew? Thank you.


The twist tie is not really considered a seal, however it is still permitted to eat the bread. Assuming that it was delivered by the non Jew from the kosher store, it is permitted to eat. essentially it is preferred that the non Jew not bring such bread, because he might switch it fo non-kosher bread. However, in retrospect we will not suspect that he switched it because he does’t really have anything to gain by doing so. Unless you suspect that he is switching your expensive- high quality bread for a cheap non kosher one, but this is usually not the case. Therefore it is permitted to at the bread.

Best wishes
