Hay is a fresher cut of grass. With straw the inner pith of the grass blade has died and been drained of all liquids and nutrients leaving only the hollow outer cells. The inner pith holds all nutrients and water (xylem, phloem). So anything uptaken by the grass blade is in the phloem, supplied by water from the xylem makes perfect growth medium for contam. So, basically straw is better.
