Importance of separate cutting board for fish/meat?

bythebay | Aug 9, 2012 11:29 PM

I accidentally used the cutting board we use for fish to cut a vanilla bean pod that I then placed in with a mixture that is to freeze into ice cream that I'll be serving guests. The vanilla bean pod did not get cooked and the mixture it's in won't be cooked, just frozen. Is this safe?

I know you're supposed to have different boards for safety reasons. I'm pretty new to eating fish and don't eat meat so I'm not used to separate boards and am not sure how big a deal it might be or might not be. Thanks.
