Unknown object in kosher food

Question:

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.

 

Answer:

Hello,

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
