That is something that I would definitely not be concerned with.
I'd relax if I were you.
And have a few more Lays chips too.

I also cut my gums while eating chips.Transmission is blood to blood.The chip is in your mouth only.I often think if kissing my wife with a bleeding gum could infect her.I now keep my tooth brush,razor, nail clippers,bathroom cup or anything else that can transmit in a separate location away from others.But not sure about the chip if you are double dipping or not.
