Let’s say that someone had some beef that may or may not have been slightly bad. Like, f’rinstance, the “use or freeze by” date was the previous day. But the beef gets cooked and put into, say, a cheeseburger. And eaten, with some ketchup and a little mustard and Tillamook sharp cheddar cheese on some toasted 9-grain bread.

Y’know. Hypothetically.

Let’s further say that that all happened last night. And it’s now about 12 hours later.

Should the hypothetical person in question be sick by now? Or can this person stop worrying about it?
