Contamination of alcohol at a canteen

Q. We have a canteen at our work place that sells fresh fruits as well as alcohol. Will it be okay for us as Muslims to purchase the fresh fruits from the canteen?

A. If there is no contamination of the fruits and alcohol at the canteen, then it will be permissible to purchase the fruits from the canteen. However, if there is a fear of contamination, then abstention is advised.
