He took a bite out of my raw ground beef!

Will my toddler get sick? should I go get his stomach pumped?

  • He will probably be fine. My daughter took a bite out of a tube of raw sausage when she was a toddler and it didn't make her sick (totally grossed me out though).

  • As long as it was fresh, he will be fine. He just had his first taste of Steak Tartar.

  • It's only Steak Tartar if it's eaten immediately after coming out of the meat grinder...the stuff we buy on the shelves...? Eh...not so fresh, oxidation happens, and other yucky it...ewww...but getting his stomach pumped? Naw, that's a little extreme. I'm guessing he'll be just fine, but clove tea will rid the digestive track of parasites, I'd get some down him one way or another for the next few days if it were my kid...

  • Cranberry Juice is also good for keeping the system clear of any bacteria thats ingested. Unless he starts complaining of bad stomach upset or trouble going potty, he should be just fine and he now knows not to do that again! LOL

  • If it was fresh and you were going to cook it for the family, it won't hurt him. It's not something you want to encourage or repeat, certainly, but it's not spoiled and it's not chicken or pork--which MIGHT be possibly harmful, it's beef. Stomach pumped--are you serious? If you are that scared why didn't you call the poison control center?
