TV cooking shows, food contamination

I always wonder every time I watch cooking program when the host grab a pinch of salt from a bowl, right after handling a raw chicken or a piece of raw pork. Is it safe to do so because the salt "kill" bacteria and its used only for raw food, or they just throw away the whole bowl of salt after the recording session?
