Yuck. Meat on your breakfast shake! How gross!
I have a part-time housekeeping job. Last week a woman asked me to clean her refrigerator for her. On the bottom shelf she had a package of raw meat defrosting and it was dripping blood all over the shelf. When I picked it up to clean under it leaked all over my hands. I had to put it in a bowl to contain all the blood that kept dripping out of it. It has been so long since I had meat in my home that I had almost forgotten how disgusting blood oozing slabs of dead animal are.
Not to mention the food safety aspect of the whole thing. It is generally recommended that meats be placed on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator so that if they do leak, they aren't dripping down onto other foods.Originally Posted by Coney
Maybe you could have your own shelf in the fridge so there's no chance of a serious gross-out like that again. You can keep your stuff separate, and she can keep her drippy meat packages separate.
That is a very unsafe practice.Originally Posted by treefingers
my mum defrosts the meat unpackaged on a plate in the cupboard (where the plates are) and it always freaks me out (and grosses me out) to open up the cupboard to get a plate or cup or bowl and see a huge slap of bloody flesh sitting there. it is so disgusting and i have to get my plate/bowl/cup from another cupboard just because i hate that it is in the same area as the open meat. ughguhguhg.
