Surprise in my macdonalds

Sep 16, 2012

Hi doctor. I ordered a burger from macdonalds, halfway through my burger I noticed the inside of the box where the burger was place had blood on it, and nope it wasn't tomato sauce it was blood. I touched it with my fingers and it was still wet. This forum says there is no risk from eating food BUT what about the blood still being wet and having cuts in your mouth? Thank you doctor.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Wow, talk about special sauce. Despite the obvious yuck factor, there really is no risk here.

As an aside, the whole 'cuts in the mouth' thing is really puzzling to me. Where are these cuts coming from? Seems to be epidemic.


Risk after oral exposure.
Unprotected oral with another male, risks?
