Shellfish spray on bananas


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?


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.
