Chicken hygiene warning

26th July 2010

Research carried out by Which? magazine has found that the majority of people usually wash a whole chicken before cooking it.

Around 75% of people wash poultry before they cook it, although this actually increases the risk of food poisoning. Washing a chicken can spread potentially dangerous bacteria to other parts of the kitchen, Which warned. Information from the Food Standards Agency has shown that 65% of raw chicken contains campylobacter (the most prevalent cause of food poisoning).
