Weird Mayo/Food Question

breadchick | Mar 28, 201907:27 PM     31

A family member does this on a regular basis, and I've seen it and it makes me skeeve out: he takes food (grilled chicken, sausages, etc.) and opens the mayo jar and dips the food in there. It leaves bits of that food in the mayo jar. Anyone needing mayo thereafter sees bit of food in it, even if it's been a week or so later. Maybe longer.

This just grosses me out. I don't want to make a sandwich and see what someone else left behind in the mayo. I pass. To me, it's unsanitary.

Am I being crazy? I couldn't find web search results that addressed this. I'm thinking bacteria has been introduced into an otherwise fairly benign condiment.
