What do you think you might pick up from raw meet?

Probably being silly but didn't know if open skin could get infected with ecoli?

I don't think you are silly to be concerned. Make sure you have gloves to hand next time. Minced meat is more likely to have bacteria than a whole piece of steak.

I don't think that's strictly true molly- minced meat is more likely to still have bacteria in it once it's cooked, especially if it's in eg a rare burger.

Steak has the same bacteria, it's just not all mixed up inside so it's easily killed during cooking.

Op, I think you may be overly anxious about this.
