I kind of thought like you did Karen with it being an insurance thing, and you're right anything you put into your mouth can make you sick. Tim's food is frozen and occasionally freeze dried so I'm not sure what the bacteria situation would be if something went a wry. I cook chicken, ALOT, and I know salmonella can be rampant there. I'm very cautious about wiping down any surfaces I've used to prepare the chicken and also make sure it's cooked thoroughly, that's common sense. On that note I also wipe down the counter after preparing Tim's food and if he doesn't eat it within an hour it's tossed, although since switching over he rarely doesn't wolf his food down. I wasn't going to necessarily stop feeding him raw since we've had such a good experience, but you read stuff like that and it makes you think.
