When I buy a refurbished item from amazon, for example this blender.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NGV4506/ref=dp_cr_wdg_tit_nw_mr

I can either buy a used like new or a refurbished item for $15-$20 less. Now yes of course to know I'm getting something 100% fine I can buy a brand new one.
 But asking to know of anyone has ran such a question to a rag or some sort and was told whether it's allowed or not?

 Is refurbished a new top but used bottom?

Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

KSA is approved by the CRC.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Let's say you get a food delivery for someone you know (Jewish). The food is 100% nonkosher (ham). What do you do?

Had this today and was in a bit of a quandary. I can't throw it out since the food wasn't mine. Didn't want to actually bring the food to the person because I don't want to be accountable for it. but if I left it there then the person would want to know why someone didn't tell them it came.

Throw it out. You wouldn't have the question if it was poison.

I was thinking about that but can I steal to prevent someone from eating nonkosher?

Doubtful. It was for that person. Just a little added background this person wasn't religious as a kid he became more religious.

Do you have a halachic source for this or you stam like being extreme? There's people that justify grabbing and breaking strangers smartphones with the same logic.

ftfy. Pretty sure wouldn't be stealing.

Not offhand, though many maaseh rav. The case you bring is obviously different for 2 reasons.

1. It's in the person's possession already and it's not your job to go fix the world in that manner. Here he is actively being nosein michshol.
The 2nd reason I'm having 2nd thoughts about, so I won't post.

You don't have to give it to him but to throw it out? Even if technically it's not a problem why would you do that? That's how you relate to people? Maybe go tell every random guy his girlfriend cheated on him and save him from nida until he finds a new one. Sorry- I never understood this kind of thing.

You're helping the guy out.

Always happy to help. :)

I don't interact much with such people, but it sounds like a good idea.  ;D

I don't understand how you can throw someone else's thing out, to do a maysa issur bkum vaasey (some form of gneiva)
If he portrays himself as a frum yid, then he has a chezkas kashrus and you need to be dan lkaf zchus and assume its not for him, or any one of 100 possibilities of why he may have ordered non-kosher food.
I`m no poseik just what my initial reaction is..

Is there any issue with sending a traif (actually traif--salami, etc...) gift basket to clients who are probably not-Jewish (based on names, but not ethnicities)? Is it an issue if the basket contains a meat and dairy item (not separate meat and dairy items, but a bacon/cheddar dip)? I recall learning that only kosher meat and dairy are an issue of hana'ah, but I could be wrong. Thanks.
