Physical contamination is the result of the adulteration of food by a foreign object such as broken glass, hair, metal shavings, paint chips, insects, stones, and so forth. If you stringently follow safety guidelines, physical contamination should not occur. However, if it does, all raw and prepared foods affected should be discarded immediately.
