    In the area of bacterial infections a common bacteria is E.Coli. This bacteria is one of a group called Coliforms which are found in the large intestine of humans and a lot of animals. There are many types of E.Coli, some are harmless, others are deadly. If a animal is processed by a professional and there is no puncture of intestines chances of getting E.Coli are low. The problem is when contents of intestine get on the meat. Then the only defense is cooking to a high temp.

      Raw ground beef would be "steak tartare." In the process of grinding, the outer surface of the meat is blended with the interior portion and may not be decontaminated by the frying process. That risk is not present when the piece of meat is intact when fried.

They are by far the best gloves I've used for field dressing and are easy to clean even 24 hours later. I like the almost to-the-armpit coverage. Pigs can be very nasty!

          Years ago I never used gloves but an experience field dressing a gut shot pig cured me of that! It was on a high hill with no close water or any other way to clean my hands other than wiping them on dead leaves or my clothes. Now I take wet wipes and plenty of tissue as well as gloves!
