Roast in the bag chicken

The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is launching a “Chicken Challenge” to help people avoid the risk of campylobacter.

The FSA 2015 chicken challengeThey’re urging people to “Spread the word not the germs” by pledging their support during Food Safety Week 2015 which starts on May 18th.

When you’re cooking chicken from scratch follow these simple rules – and urge everyone else to do the same:

  • Bag and store raw chicken separately from other food, covered and chilled on the bottom shelf of the fridge
  • Don’t wash raw chicken as it can splash germs
  • Wash everything that’s touched raw chicken in soap and hot water – your hands and utensils
  • Check it’s cooked properly with no pink meat and until it’s tender and steaming hot all the way through, and the juices run clear

To take the pledge and for the chance to win some amazing prizes, visit the FSA website.
