You Should Stop Washing Raw Chicken Immediately

Probably many of us do not know how harmful it is to wash chicken before cooking. Water helps the bacteria found there to spread. We all think that by washing we remove the bacteria but we are wrong. Although most of us do this so many advise that you should immediately stop. By spraying water, bacteria from chicken is being transmitted all around us. Without realizing it is transferred to our clothes and dishes in the kitchen.

It is thought that it is a bacterium called Campylobacter. A source of infection can be contact with infected animals. Scientists say the bacteria is a serious problem and that we should look a lot about what we eat and what is its origin, and to maintain hygiene. This bacteria causes abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea etc. It can’t be destroyed by water. So when we wash the chicken we are removing the bacteria from it but we pass it on to things around us such as dishes etc. So we must be very careful. We have never thought that bacteria can be destroyed by the cooking process. You may be wondering how to proceed and what is right? Bacteria disappear at high temperatures so simply chop the chicken and place it in oven.
