    Have you ever accidently given someone food poisoning?

    Maybe it was because of uncooked food or maybe it was food you were unaware had gone off.

    No thankfully.  I am always very careful with checking temperatures of food when I cook and of keeping surfaces clean and sanitized and avoiding cross-contamination.  If I think there is even a tiny chance something has gone off I will not use it. 

    I got salmonella food poisoning at a restaurant when I was only 10 years old.  I was SO sick and it was so awful, it left that much of a lasting impression on me! I'm 40 and still remember how bad it was.  In fact, I to this day cannot eat Jr. Mint candies which is what I had for dessert that evening lol - and it took me many years to ever eat turkey again (it was a turkey club that poisoned me)

    Due to that experience, I have always been very cautious, to the point of being obsessive with food preparation.

    yeah, my family members, 3 of us had diarrhea but my son didn't. He didn't eat any of it.
