Food safety week
This week is food safety week and the Food Standard Agency has launched a campaign to alert the public about the washing of raw chicken. The call comes as new figures show that 44% of people always wash chicken before cooking it - a practice that can spread campylobacter bacteria onto hands, work surfaces, clothing and cooking equipment through the splashing of water droplets. For further information see the Food Standards Agency website
