Poisonous chicken

25/11/2014

Can your bought chicken from the supermarket try and kill you?

Poisonous bacteria found on the outer packaging of supermarket chicken have led health officials to advise shoppers to keep poultry in a separate bag in the fridge.

A report this week is expected to confirm that campylobacter, a major cause of food poisoning, is present on the external packaging of thousands of fresh whole chickens sold in Britain each day.

The Food Standards Agency said the bacteria grew in the guts of chickens but was being transferred to the outside of plastic put around birds during processing.

People touching the packaging could easily pick up the bacteria and should wash their hands with soap and warm water afterwards, or just use our Envirocair Veterinary hand gels to be sure! Order yours  http://protekbiochem.com/products/64/veterinary-disinfectant-hand-gel-50ml.aspx
