I would agree that poor hand washing and related practices (not waring gloves or using tongs for example) is a bigger issue than food arriving at the store or restaurant already contaminated with something. Of course a lot of it is contaminated with something, but this is often neutralized by proper cooking. It is the handling of cooked foods, and foods that aren't intended to be cooked that cause most of the problems. In that vain, dirty hands is the number one culprit.

Thanks for clarifying.
No harm done. It was probably my fault for not being as clear as I should have been

Why doesn't your friend just cough directly on the food and eliminate the hand thing all together?

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

It is kinda cute, and very good information. I noticed, the last time I was in the doctor's office, that she coughed into her elbow.
Hey, why not? I've had people blowing smoke up my sleeve for ages, so maybe the smoke will kill those nasty germs.
