Unknown object in kosher food


I was eating a wrap made by my wife from prepared food (tabule and humus) from a kosher certified grocery store. Inside, I found a small, hard, tasteless foreign item that I was unable to chew. I’m not really able to identify the object. Personally, I thought it might be something inedible like a small stone and my wife speculated it might be a peppercorn. In any event, I discarded the object, and after some debate, decided to finish the wrap. Obviously, there is nothing to be done now, but was this the right decision from a kashrut perspective? The potential concern, I suppose, would be the object was something not kosher.




If the food was bought was under kosher supervision, then we don’t have to assume that whatever it was wasn’t kosher.

Best wishes
