Sweat of a kaafir

Q: I read that the sweat of a kaafir is impure. In the Uk there are lots of shopping centres where the cashiers are non Muslims. If we go to the cashier with our food or clothes and they touch it to scan it are we not allowed to wear those clothes and eat that food?

A: Their sweat is not impure.

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