I know you don't care to BUT You probably already Have! What you don't know hasn't killed you-------Yet!
SO WHAT???? what's your point? that I've been the victim of unsafe food handling from a restaurant and didn't know it? Ok, fine. It's true. I was. There - happy? You're right, I've been a victim of someone else's bad habits.
that doesn't mean a thing. it doesn't mean it should be tolerated or accepted. To say it should be accepted merely because you, foodbme, doesn't know someone has died from it is, to say the least, unimportant.
People DO get sick and die from unsafe food handlling practices. People DO get bacterial infections from unsafe food handling. People DO get food poisoning from unsafe handling of food. It DOES happen, whether you know of any victims or not. And that's the point: unsafe food handling DOES lead to illness and can cause death.
Forget about the 5 second rule and steaks hitting the floor, its a diversion to avoid the real life scenraio that was explained in an earlier post. So lets go back to the root of this, which had to do with specific instances of how Roadkill Bill's dish was mis-handled at a Waffle House. And in that case, it was over the top and dead wrong. And anyone who defends that kind of behavior and laughs it off as something that should be ignored, is either blinded by their own bias or dumb. In this case, I don't think you're dumb at all.
