What would you like to do?
Handling the food and knowing the food are as different as black and white you may know where it comes from and who owned it what it was fed and yadda yadda yadda. but the mas…tery in all cooking is knowing how to handle it, the FDA and states have different regulations to these matters such as raw chicken maybe left out in some states as long as it is used within 15 mins, and in other states it better be in its own container in a fridge hovering around 40 degrees or you could get fine. just go to any search and type in what are the food regulations in what ever state and you can get them for free in a PDF Back to your question yes it can effect others health safety by leaving something out for to long or the biggiest mistake is cross contamination. this means by using one utensil for one thing such as chicken then using it on veggies. There is natural bacteria on alot of foods and with time and heat it can progress into dangerous levels that can make people ill.
well, thats what i need to know ASAP. Collage assignment question -.- FAIL ;)

Food safety consists of keeping raw meats separated from foods that will be eaten raw, cooking meat to a safe internal temperature, returning cooked foods to the fridge after finishing a meal and discarding foods that have been left on the counter too long. For a good reference, you can search for consumer information on the USDA FSIS website.
Canned food effectively creates a barrier between the food and outside contaminants. Cans also help to preserve foods by limiting the amount of air and oxidation directly on t…he food. Alternately cans that are old and/or damaged can produce dangerous bacteria growth such as Botulism.
