Bishul Akum for a Holeh She'en Bo Sakana

Bishul Akum for a Holeh She'en Bo Sakana
Day: Wednesday
Date: June 24, 2015
Parshat: Hukat
Yalkut Yosef: 328

If there is nothing else around, it is permissible to give to a Holeh She'en Bo Sakana on Shabbat food which was cooked by a non Jew and is Bishul Akum. Of course, that is only so if all of the ingredients in the food are kosher. As mentioned previously if the food was cooked that day it may not be eaten by a Sephardic person if it contains any muktzeh ingredients. In certain situations, a person with a life threatening condition may eat non kosher foods. However, he does not say a beracha on such foods since the food is still not kosher. A person in our scenario though, who does not have a life threatening condition and is allowed to eat Bishul Akum foods, but not actual non kosher food, does say a beracha on the food since it is kosher.
