I am freaking out right now because I am worried I will eventually come down with Salmonella. Let me just start from the beginning and explain myself a little bit.
I work at a fast food restaurant, and I was asked to prep up raw chicken and put it in the fryers. So, I placed I think 8 pieces of raw chicken in the batter, and as I was leaning over, my iPod fell out of my shirt pocket I keep it in into the batter. I quickly took out the iPod and ran it under some water and it LOOKS clean (even though I know it isn't). However, I put the iPod in my back pocket after than and finished with the chicken. I washed my hands twice (the water didn't feel really hot), and used 2 moist towelettes to clean my hands off. I want to mention that I was wearing gloves the entire time.
However, I ate some food afterward when I went on my break - a burger and french fries. I ate the burger with the wrapping around it so my hands wouldn't come in contact with it, and I ate the fries up to where my hand came in contact with it and then threw it away. This happened around 5:30 last night, and so far I don't feel anything. I am just freaking out because my stomach feels a little queasy, but it's felt this way before. I had some diarrhea this morning and felt fine after that. (Sorry TMI).
So should I be worried about salmonella poisoning? I'm freaking out right now.
