Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you today.

In regards ***** ***** health risks, all food uncovered and therefore in direct or airborne exposure to the raccoon should be thrown away and not consumed. This is because we cannot rule out bacterial contamination of any non-covered/protected foods that were in close contact with this animal.

I hope this information is helpful.

If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!

All the best,

Dr. B.
