This has been debated for years – the five second rule.
You know – when you drop food on the floor, and the thought it that if it’s there less than 5 seconds, it’s still safe to eat.
So, what’s the latest view on this?
It doesn’t matter how long the food is on the floor – it matters how clean your floor is.
Experts say you should ensure your floors are totally devoid of any bacteria… good luck with that.
They say if you can’t guarantee that, if something falls on the floor, throw it out.
My thoughts on this? It all depends on how tasty the thing is that fell on the floor. 😉
