bugs

Question:

If a fly lands on hand towels or other clothes and then touches hand, mouth, or food itself, is that a problem? Is that like eating a bug to eat food that touched a surface where a bug touched?

 

Answer:

Generally it is not a problem because there is nothing forbidden about a place that fly touched. If the fly however layed eggs on the towel, they should not be eaten, which is not a commen occurance. There are times when certain meat flies can land on proteins and lay eggs on them, the eggs would be an issue, but this doesn’t happen with towels.

Best wishes
