Is it safe to eat chicken every day?
There are no specific dangers related to eating chicken (with other things) every day. However, limiting your diet also limits the various vitamins, minerals, and nutrients your body needs. If you are sticking with chicken, be sure to mix up your different veggies, fruits, grains, and other types of food to better cover your diet.

Is it ok to eat frozen cooked orange chicken after expiration date?
No It should not do you any harm but the taste will go ---------------------- You should have no problem, I would not let it go 1 month past the date, how i cook it is have it in a Pyrex dish and bake it at the temperature. instead of adding the Orange sauce at the very end, I have the time a few minutes shy and add in the sauce and put it in for the last few minutes so it gets that candy like crunch, but don't have it in too long or in a oven too hot the sugars will burn and turn bitter.

Can you die from eating dog feces?
Feces are just what is left over after an animal digests its food. It's not the feces themselves that could kill you or make you sick but the bacteria that quickly grow in feces. If you get infected with bacteria and you are not treated, you could die. The same is true of getting infected by bacteria from other sources. Dogs sometimes eat feces (they like cat feces, probably because the cat's food has a lot of protein in it) but they don't get sick so easily, because they have antibacterial substances in their digestive system. Humans don't have such protection. So it's not advisable to eat dog feces, even if you wouldn't die from it. Your question reminds me of the late actor and drag queen Divine. He put dog feces in his mouth in one of his movies, Pink Flamingos. He did not die, but he described it as one of the most humiliating and terrible experiences he ever went through. He realized how low his self-esteem had sunk that he allowed himself to do this.
Asked in Food Safety, Drinking Water
Is sterile water for irrigation safe for babies to drink?
Irrigation water may be potable, but it is not sterile. When in doubt, boil the water for baby. Answer 2: Unless you are in a dire situation such as a third world country or lost in the woods (which I doubt as you are using the internet) Do not give an infant or child any water that is not from a safe potable tap (such as your kitchen water faucet, if the water in your area has been deemed safe for human consumption), or from a factory sealed, drinking water.
Asked in Food Safety
Is it safe to heat soup in the can will it contaminate the soup?
If the can is metal it wont matter if the soup is contaminated because metal + microwave = fire. And if it was in there long enough it probably would contaminate the soup but even if it didn't, don't microwave it out of the can. May sound obvious but open it first otherwise BANG I have heated soup and other canned foods over a fire while camping. You have to watch to see if the can has a plastic lining and it doesn't become damaged while heating. Canned foods are typically heat processed after sealing in the can so as long as it is controlled there will not be a problem.
Is a mushy tan chicken liver safe to eat?
Probably. I'm assuming that the liver is fresh and was properly handled, kept cold, etc. Livers vary in colour and texture so some will be deep red and others tan and softer. A lighter liver colour tends to mean there is more fat in the liver, which is why fois gras is quite pale. It can be affected by what the chicken is eating.

Can eating brown lettuce make you sick?
It's a possibility, but as a preventative measure, you should never eat it. You can remove the brown parts and still eat the parts of the lettuce that are still green and crisp. Lettuce turns brown due to oxidation; water will usually collect at the bottom of the bag during this process. When this happens, it becomes food for mold and that in turn can make you sick. Of course a little browning is natural and is unrelated to mold. When preparing a salad in advance, handling the lettuce and breaking it into smaller pieces with your bare hands is recommended because using a metal knife causes the lettuce to brown even faster. Also, storing the lettuce in a tightly closed container helps to keep it fresh.
