I did abstain from chametz during Passover.
Good question. Chometz that was owned by a Jew over Pesach is no longer acceptable to be eaten.
All Jews have an equal status as Jews, regardless of level of religious observance.
Ask a major Rav if you have access to them. There are certain leniencies by wholesalers if no other Kosher food is readily available.
Thank you very much for your answers.

Nope. Unless they sold it to a gentile before the holiday.
However, this is only if you know for certain that it was, in fact, owned by Jews during Passover. If you have a doubt, then it could be OK.
