You've never ripped a line of primo ground beef before?
Here where I live, they call it "Bombay chuck." I've heard it's over 90% pure; none of that 30% fat street stuff.
I work a lot with food. I'm very careful regarding the quality of ingredients I buy whether it be for home or work.
If I am buying mince (ground beef) I ensure that it is premium quality. Anything less than premium quality I feed to my dogs.
With regards to spilling the contents and cleaning up - if the blood gets into fabrics such as clothes or tea towels, the stain will only set if it is washed in hot water. Soak in cold water with generic laundry powder.
I am much more careful when it comes to the liquid that comes out of chicken meat. It can contain nasties that can make you sick.
Always use special purpose cutting boards for different types of cooked and raw food to avoid cross-contamination and always ensure personal hygiene before and after food prep.
BTW, I have heard the term "Bombay Duck" but didn't know it referred to ground beef (beef mince)!

loud gush the streamlets,
