Don’t Count Your Chicken’s Bacteria

The Food Standards Agency is warning people not to wash chicken before cooking it – because this splashes

campylobacter bacteria around the kitchen, the Daily Mail reports.

The agency’s concerns are linked to a survey it carried out, which revealed that 44% of cooks always wash their chicken,

wrongly believing that it helps get rid of germs. But the Food Standards Agency said that spreading campylobacter causes

illness in households and costs the economy and the NHS hundreds of millions of pounds a year in sick leave.

FSA chief executive Catherine Brown said: ‘Although people tend to follow recommended practice when handling poultry,

such as washing hands after touching raw chicken and ensuring it is thoroughly cooked, our research found that washing

raw chicken is also common practice.’
