The 30-Second Rule, A Decision Tree” by Audrey Fukman and Andy Wright.

“NEW LONDON, Conn. — Two Connecticut College student researchers have found that the ‘five-second rule’ – which stipulates that dropped food will be safe to eat if it stays on the floor for fewer than five seconds – might better be known as the ’30-second rule.’

The results prove, according Goettsche and Moin, that you can wait at least 30 seconds to pick up wet foods and more than a minute to pick up dry foods before they become contaminated with bacteria.”
