    Default The Surprising Mistake that Actually Makes Chicken Less Safe to Eat

    Your intentions are good, but a food watchdog says don't do it.

    The government's food watchdog has urged consumers to stop washing chicken before they cook it to avoid contaminating their kitchen with Campylobacter – the most common type of food poisoning in the UK – which can cause death as well as serious health problems.

    Research for the Food Standards Agency reveals that more than two-fifths of cooks say they routinely wash chicken as part of their food preparations. But the FSA has warned that splashed water droplets can spread Campylobacter bacteria on to human skin, work surfaces, clothing and cooking equipment.

    I read this somewhere yesterday, but I'm sure I heard about it some time ago.

    I don't think we have quite the same dangerous situation with chicken in Australia, but if I were concerned I would wipe the meat with either colloidal silver or vinegar. You could then safely rinse off the vinegar with water.

    What surprises me is how we continue to take for granted that all our factory food is contaminated. Poisoned chicken...why, of course...
