I had a bag of zucchini that was frozen (solid) when opening the bag (to put it in the pot to make soup) the zucchini went flying out and on to the kitchen floor. Would you use the zucchini or not? Why?

Depends how clean the floor (and zucchini ) were. If my floor was recently mopped , I would wash and use. If not, discard

It grows in dirt and mud.

Depends on the state of your kitchen floor. If you wash the floor once a week and wear outside shoes indoors, I wouldn't.

But I don't allow outdoor shoes in the house and wash the floor every night, so I probably would wash and use.

Rinse and use. You're going to be cooking it up anyway, and germs still left after rinsing will be killed either way.
For those that would never dare use it, I hope you don't ever buy commercially cooked food (bakery, restaurant etc).

True, but it doesn't come out of the ground cut up. That's a lot of exposed surface area that's kind of hard to wash well in its sliced and frozen state.

I agree, if the floor has been recently cleaned and it will cook at high heat, fine. If it's been trampled with dirty sneakers for days - no way.

Something to think about for the future: you don't know where your produce has been before purchase. It could have been somewhere dirtier than your floor. Just wash it the same way you would produce you just bought before you use it.

I use unpeeled zucchini very often. I wash it with dishwashing soap and water and rinse it very well.
If the above scenario happened to me I would place all the pieces in a container and wash it the same way taking care to rinse off all the soap.

Caterers too. I was once working at a simcha and a tray of corned beef fell in the garbage. The boss made us take it out and serve it anyway.

I once saw an onion truck unload in front of a store. A bag of onions must have split, and a whole bunch of rogue onions rolled onto the dirty street. Guess where those onions went? Into the store. Yup. Someone bought them, I'm sure.

So what? as a previous poster said, they grow in the ground. You think those bagged onions weren't sitting in dirt before or after they were bagged? Think again. In any case, most people peel onions before use. YMMV.

My point was exactly your point. If you think the veggies you are getting in the store are so clean...think again.
