I once dropped a whole roast chicken. Nobody saw.

“Are those... pepper corns?”

I trust you've seen the bacon flowchart?

Heh.

Someone "reliable" told me there's a "30 second" rule for food that touches the floor. Depends on the floor of course.

Reminds me of the instruction for dummies and teething rings.

First baby
1. Wash in detergent
2. Disinfect 1 hour
3. Boil for 1 hour
4. Return to baby

Second baby
1. Wipe it on your handkerchief
2. Return to baby

I've been pretty successful introducing a '2-minute rule' here at the office. Anything not on the floor for at least 2 minutes is (again) edible.

The reasoning is about as solid as for the 30-second rule.

TDK,

I've always heard it as the "5-second rule".

My wife says 10 seconds, which proves I'm less reliable than her.

As for your fancy New York 5 seconds standards....
