Mishnah Kerisos 3:3: And how much time can elapse between eating them [for the pieces to be combined]? [The time it takes to] eat parched grains, these are the words of Rabbi Meir. But the Sages say: [They are combined if he waits up to] the time it takes to eat half a loaf of bread. If one ate impure foods or drank impure beverages, or if one drank a quarter [of a Log - a biblical unit of liquid measurement] of wine, and entered the Temple [precincts, he is liable if his consumption] took the amount of time it takes to eat half a loaf of bread. Rabbi Elazar says: If he interrupted [the drinking] or if he put even a trace amount of water in it, he is exempt.

Mishnah Kerisos 3:4: There is [a case where] one who does a single [act of] eating can become liable to four chata'ot and one Asham [an offering brought to alleviate guilt]: [If] an impure person ate forbidden fat which was Notar from a sacrifice, and it was Yom Kippur. Rabbi Meir says: If it was on Shabbat and he carried it out in his mouth he is liable [to yet another Chatat]. But they [the Sages] said to him: That is not in the same category [of sin, not being an eating infraction].

יש אוכל אכילה אחת. וחייב עליה ארבע חטאות ואשם אחד. טמא שאכל את החלב והיה נותר. מן מוקדשים. וביום הכפורים. רבי מאיר אומר אם היתה שבת. והוציאו בפיו חייב. אמרו לו אינו מן השם:
