Not much: If you do not develop symptoms within 6-8 hours, you are generally safe.

Trichinosis is very rare in the USA, but toxoplasmosis can be transmitted by undercooked meat of any kind. If you have already eaten this and become ill, remember to tell your doctor about it if you become ill.

Sure: Think of raw animal products as potentially contaminated. Wash your hands before and after touching raw animal products; watch utensils-don't mix.
