If one is making meat, and while the meat is still raw licks his/her fingers, does s/he become Fleishigs (to wait the appropriate amount of time before eating dairy)?

Essentially if we boil (excuse the pun) the question down a bit more, does inedible meat or chicken make one Fleishigs?

(for purposes of this question, I suppose we should disregard the potential volume aspects)

Consult a medical practitioner or dietician about the advisability of licking fingers dirty from raw chicken anyway. And, as always, CYLOR about the halachic question, rather than relying on answers here. –  msh210 Sep 22 '11 at 4:08
    
That is extremely dangerous, ftr. –  Seth J May 1 '12 at 1:19

Who said that raw meat is inedible? The Shulchan Aruch rules in Hilchot Shabbat that raw meat is not Muktzeh on Shabbat since there are people who eat it as a delicacy (ie Steak Tartar).

Would you say that about chicken? –  yydl Sep 22 '11 at 16:29
    
See the mishna menachot 11:7 –  Double AA Jan 5 '12 at 4:44
