Shellfish spray on bananas

Question:

Hi, many bananas are sprayed with chitosan, which is made from shellfish. Some can leak into the fruit itself. Does this present a problem for kashrut?

Are organic bananas different?

Answer:

The bananas are permitted to eat, and the spray, even if it would be forbidden to eat, does  not seep into the bananas.

Best wishes.
