Possible fly/thrip in casserole


My wife prepared a casserole of meat and potatoes. The potatoes had been sitting in a bowl of water. Whilst cutting up a few more potatoes from the bowl, she noticed two tiny thrips/flies on two potatoes which were still in the bowl. Does she need to be concerned that some of the other potatoes also had flies on them and that they were mistakenly put into the casserole or do we say ein machzkinan issur?




If it appears that the flies are external, and didn’t come from within the potatoes, then, just check over the rest of them, and it is fine. Additionally if she already made the casserole, since it was only two, we can assume that there weren’t any more.

Best wishes
