Question : #530 Category: Food & Drinks
Subject: fertilized fruits and veges
Question: Is there a problem eating vegetables grown without chemical fertilizer (Biological label).
It means that generally the chemicals are replaced by a dryed blood coumpound which is used as a fertilizer. The powdered blood is sprinkled on the floor some month before the crop and is made of animal blood (of course not slaughtered islamically and of course may contain pig blood also). Please can you give me the rulings about this matter ?

I am a follower of Seyyed Sistani (may he live long).
Answer: There is no harm in eating vegetables or fruits grown in the method you described. Fertilizers have generally been known to contain animal refuse, but the process of fertilizing does not necessarily transfer the najasat.
