Don't taste milk to see if it's gone bad. Don't put cooked meat back on the same plate that held the meat when raw. Don't wash meat, poultry or eggs. Don't eat food that contains raw egg, including raw cookie dough. Don't put marinade that was used on raw meat on cooked food. Don't undercook meat, poultry or eggs.
