UK warns against washing chicken
(06-16 19:54)

British authorities advised consumers against washing chicken saying that, contrary to common belief, the practice could lead to food poisoning.
The stern warning was aimed at the 44 percent of Britons who wash raw chicken before cooking it, according to a survey by the British Food Safety Authority.
Washing raw chicken can spread campylobacter bacteria, the most common cause of food poisoning in Britain -- though just 28 percent of the 4,540 adults surveyed had heard of it.
The most common reasons given for washing chicken were the belief that it removes dirt and bacteria, and because it was a family tradition.
In fact, the practice can spread the dangerous bacteria onto hands, clothing and surfaces, the FSA said.--AFP
