Not sure I understand the question. But bacterial infections and allergies are two different entities.

Since bacteria are everywhere and only sterilized foods are free of bacteria, you will most certainly get bacteria on most foods. However they are usually not harmful and may possibly be beneficial unless the contamination is from a disease-causing bacteria. This however has nothing to do with your food allergy.
