Gary Stuart, I do wish you luck in all your endeavors. I hope that you stay healthy, however, I think the odds may be against you. You must have a very healthy set of biological bacteria in your gut. Consider yourself one of the lucky ones! There was a recent study about how much bacteria and dirt adhere to food that has been on the ground for less than five seconds (the general rule for eating a fallen substance) and the answer is: a lot.

As for fridge food, anything cooked usually stays fine in the refrigerator for up to a week. I would suggest that you smell the item and/or taste a little bit of it prior to eating the whole serving if it is more than one week. A refrigerator that is constantly opened has trouble maintaining it's internal temperature and food may go bad a little faster than a fridge that is not opened so frequently. In my house, where we have food on every shelf, I am quite vigilant about wrapping my food and using up prepared foods within the week.

Keep me posted!

Great series, Elizabeth. You got me particularly worried about the hygiene part given that I have been known to eat off floors when that scrap of food that I really wanted accidentally landed there (particularly bad when the scrap was wet).

Unlike gladys lloyd (who is obviously spending too much time in Florida if she never gets sick!), I had a wicked cold this year which I'm starting to think may have been self-inflicted!

I particularly liked your observation that we shouldn't be too quick to blame the mayo, but should rather should look to our hands first. In our house, we're very quick to throw out food that has been in the fridge for a few days longer than we intended, but I'm wondering whether food doesn't go bad as fast as everyone thinks. I'm going to start eating that week-old chicken!!! Wish me luck.

This is superb! I always say it's the food handling rather than the food that can make us sick! thanks for an incredible series!
