Surely if it was raw steak, and you're not a Puma, then you'd cook it, then eat it ?
(Assuming you got to it before the Puma !)

I thought that....

I love this! Dynamic risk assessment in action!

Amd I am obviously not the only person to eat food dropped on the floor.....

I would add in a step about "is it your floor or someone elses floor...."

The Puma wouldn't be able to read the chart though, so he would just sit there in indecision, not knowing whether he could eat or not, and meanwhile you could dart in and snaffle the steak.

Chop it up with a bit of capers, onion, cornichons and parsley and eat it fresh and raw. Bacteria schmacteria.

I would have thought 'Nil by mouth' would be more appropriate by that stage.

Missing from the flow chart --- Is it washable? Raw food that is washable you just wash off and then cook (if it is to be cooked). If raw veggies like for a salad, well it was on the ground (where it grew) and was washed before, just do it again.

As for non-human animals being unable to read the chart, in my experience not a problem. For example, most of us have seen the "five second rule". Our dog may be able to read but any food hitting the floor he manages to scarf up at least that quickly.

You could also add in the "when did I last clean the floor factor", closely followed by "has Mr C walked through here in muddy boots recently" test.

and "what am I going to do with it?"
a carrot destined to simmer merrily in a stockpot for 6 hours... not such a worry.
Sashimi...

And like I said, you washed that carrot before after ypu pulled it out of the ground -- so wash it again. Extremely unlikely that your floor even begins to compare with the well manured soil the carrot grew in.

although carrots tend not to do so well in well manured soil.
