Add comment on:Another reason not to eat (or even touch) factory farmed chicken: Campylobacter
Britian's Food Standards Agency has issued a new warning: "Campylobacter is a serious issue. Not only can it cause severe illness and death, but it costs the economy hundreds of millions of pounds a year as a result of sickness." It's so bad, the FSA urges people not to even wash chicken at home because splashing water spreads the dangerous bacteria all over the kitchen. It is being recommended that US "consumers" of chicken don't even touch the packaging of chicken in grocery stores, but rather use gloves to prevent contamination. So the obvious question is, do you really want to eat something you can't even safely touch?
