no. once food "crosses the counter", it cannot be reused. I also saw this on a documentary that asked the same question.

to the op can't we just hit the report as a bad post button? how long does it take to remove these nasty threads (although this one has become interestingly nice) i think i try harder as a home baker to be clean with my tools, workplace ect because i think people are harder on us-and i am very thankfull i don't eat those pork things-personally they just sound gross but to each his own

Years ago, I went into a bakery to pick up a cake for my husband (then boyfriend). The girl behind the counter asked me if I wanted anything written on it, and I asked her to write "Happy Birthday Dan" on it. When she went to pipe the words, her tip was clogged.

What does she do... Turns the pastry bag around, sticks the tip in her mouth, and sucks out the clog!!! Then she starts to pipe on the cake!!!

I was in such shock that all I could say was, "um, I've changed my mind" and rushed out of there. Of course, I was young and timid then. Now, of course, I would give her a piece of my mind! That's one thing that never happens in my home kitchen!!!

Never thought my diet cure was going to cake central and getting sooooo grossed out I may never eat out again- no pickles, no Fritos, no hot dogs, no buns, No Red Lobster- ugh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why can't I stop reading these threads? I try and try and keep coming back....like a train wreck I can't look away icon_eek.gif

it was obviously a pubic hair, it still had the root attached...i think someone did it on purpose, maybe i got the chili they were gonna give some complaining person or something.....it's been about 8 years, i finally got a burger a few months ago from wendy's, at a different store...that was so gross cause i already ate half of the chili....i got it from the drive thru, so i didn't bother to complain, i would now though....shivvver that was nasty.

This thread is really pretty amusing. If the OP wanted to insult home bakers she failed miserably, since we all seem to be able to see how stupid the remark was to begin with.

I'm going to go get some corn chips now...Then eat a couple of pickles. And maybe have chili for dinner.

Those of you that can, talk to a health inspector on the gross stuff he finds in places. I talked with one that you would seriously not believe the stuff he has found or had to go and check out. The worst was a TROJAN wrapper in the stew! If you don't trust a home baker fine, so be it, stop cooking and baking at home and take your chance at the legal places, but first do your homework and check the inspections! You may never want to eat again!

At least it was just the wrapper! (I had to say it, I know you're all thinking it!) icon_razz.gif

Well it might not be just the wrapper,he might spill in a little something something to make the stew extra spicy.

all4cake, to answer your question about why the rule doesn't seem to work for protein. You got the rule right, but you left off the end of the rule: i before e, except after c or when making an 'E' (ee) sound. Hope that explains it! icon_smile.gif

By the way, I once dated a chef who flat out refused to ever send food back. If he ordered a med-well steak and it came out rare, he just ate it. He'd heard far too many horror stories in the industry of what people do to your food and he taught me never to send it back either! There were some pretty gross stories but I won't go into details

This reminded me of the joke my dear old grandpa told me when I was little: "What's worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm."

Well, you have all given me the newfound courage to go on my diet that I need, so I can lose 80 pounds before my wedding. No bread, fritos, wendys, red lobster. Oh, why don't I just write off anyplace that pays minimum wage, and chips?

Now, if I can only remember this post for the next two years. Thank God I live in a "whole food, organic" area of the country.

I think I just threw up in my mouth! I can't eat those things anyway, but I'd really have to puke if I saw one with hair on it!

I'm a very responsible and clean home baker. I always brush my dogs' teeth before I let them lick out the bowls and cake pans. icon_wink.gif

It's not the long black hairs I worry about but the short, wiry ones that cause me to wretch.

More confusing than that I'm reckonin'...what about neighbor or weigh....they just should never use that 'i' before 'e' except after 'c' to start with...geez...except if it makes a 'long eeee' sound or a 'long aaaaa' sound. the 'long e' rule doesn't apply if the word ends with an 'e' like in retrieve....they just shouldn't have kids remember that rule at all there's just too many exceptions....for this ol' redneck anyhow.

What??? I didn't know that was in the book of rules for home bakers. Guess I better start wiping the cat paws. Dang...if it's not one thing it's another with these pesky rules!

BTW - since we're "sharing" gross food stories - THREE times I've found little goodies in my chicken sandwich from Chick-Fil-A. Twice it was a bug - once on the meat and once baked into the bun. The third one was a winner - a big piece of deep fried plastic of some sort. I was actually impressed that the plastic made it all the way through the cooking process without melting! I don't eat those anymore. icon_razz.gif

Now THIS is the kinda stuff that keeps me comin' back!! Hilarious!
Once I went to Shopko (similar to Wal-Mart) early in the am to get some toiletries. They'd just opened and I'm sure I was the first person in the door. I got to the checkout and there was a dead mouse sprawled out on top of some candy bars in the "impulse buy" area. Granted, I didn't find something gross while eating, but still...I will never buy another candy bar at the checkout again....

What did the original post say? It looks like it was edited to be less insulting.

This is all so gross. One time I opened a can of Ranch Style Beans and there was a shredded snake skin in it. Ew.

I make tiny little booties for my cat out of the hairnet gauze.

My health dept. inspector told me it was ok to have my pets help, as long as I paid into their social security tax fund. Oh, yeah, and unemployment insurance for them too.
