Mashed potatoes and The 5 second Rule

The 5 second rule applies to food items that have been dropped and landed on the floor. If you pick up said food item within 5 problem.

For example: Your Oreo (or Hydrox, depending on your preference) hits the floor. OH NO!!! MY COOKIE!!! Don't panic. Be brave, focus, move quickly, and pick up that delicious snack and pop it in your mouth where it belongs.

However, there are some foods for which it is difficult to apply the 5 second rule. Mashed potatoes, for one. Some of the mashed potatoes will no doubt have acquired a dog hair patina while some remain pristine.

How then should the 5 second rule be applied? I really need to know although 5 seconds has already passed and my dogs took care of the matter long ago.
