Stop Washing Your Chicken in the Sink

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Food Standards Agency has issued some advice regarding meat. It says not to rinse raw chicken in the sink before cooking it, as doing so means you may splash raw meat germs around your sink and get Campylobacter bacteria over everything. And Campylobacter is a bad one, triggering everything from vomiting and extreme poo events to irritable bowel syndrome. [Guardian]
