can I eat this dinner? Cure #2

I used a cutting board to roll beef in a cure containing 2g of Instacure #2 for bresaola. The cutting board had little remains of the cure/spice mixture, but then I started making dinner on the same cutting board without thinking. My dinner is consisting of about 5 pounds of cooked food; that I will not all be consuming myself. I know I just sound paranoid, but is this dangerous?

  1. If it's all cooked, you're okay. If some of it is raw, you most certainly are not.

    1. yeah - beef you're fine, anyway since you're cooking the subsequent ingredients I wouldn't stress even if it were chicken (I wouldn't consciously DO that, but for personal consumption I wouldn't stress).
