Hmmm...: We all eat bread or baked goods from stores such as supermarkets, or cafes such as Starbucks. That means all 300 million or so of us Americans. Haven't heard of any ergot poisoning problems.

No: What you described will not cause food poisoning. Have a healthy diet, exercise, drink plenty of water, have safe sex, if you do, and get HPV vaccine.
