Assume that rodents (i.e. rats) steal part of your food and there is a norovirus outbreak.
With respect to norovirus, I think there is not much I can do to "prevent" myself from catching the illness; e.g. I can't inspect my Chipotle burrito and go, "ah ha! there's the norovirus right there on my tomatos!"
But with respect to rats falling out of the ceilings, I would like to know what kind of food safety precautions I should adhere to.
My question is: If rats eat part of my food, can I simply scoop away this part and then eat the rest of my food? Or is it not advisable to eat any of the food?
Is there like a "5 second rule" that I can follow?
