Halacha - chalav akum
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:
Answer:

Chalav akum is unquestionably assur as per Shulchan Aruch Yoreh Deah (Mishna Berura unfortunately only covers Orach Chaim). However Reb Moshe Feinstein zatzal famously explains that the issur of chalav akum is solely due to concern that the non-Jew may mix in milk from a non-Kosher animal. Therefore, in a situation where there is no reason to be concerned for such a possibility, such as a large company in a country where there are strict laws, supervision and enforcement that milk should be 100% pure cow's milk, the issur was never applied. Therefore it is not a "heter", but an explanation and definition of the original issur. Not all Poskim accept Reb Moshe's psak, and one who has a minhag to be machmir or follows a different Posek should not drink milk without a Jewish Mashgiach. But in much of the frum world Reb Moshe's psak is accepted as the final word.
