Q: Recently, I found out that it is likely that most cheeses in fritolay snacks contain rennet from animals slaughtered in a haram manner. Does that make the cheese haram too? I’m confused about this because I used to get those snacks in the masjid when I was younger.


A: There is a difference of opinion in this regard. It is safest not to consume such cheese.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
