Food safety week - The Chicken Challenge 2015

Let's hear it for the humble chicken. We love it. It's healthy and versatile food and it brings us all together around the table for Sunday lunch and around the barbecue on sunny afternoons. But there's just one thing we don't love about it. Chicken can cause food poisoning. The FSA estimate that about 280,000 cases of food poisoning a year can be traced to Campylobacter - a germ found mostly on raw chicken. You can't see it, smell it or even taste it on food, but if it affects you, you won't forget it. At its worst, campylobacter can kill or paralyse you. The FSA wants to cut the number of cases of campylobacter poisoning in half by the end of 2015. To achieve this they have come up with the Chicken Challenge 2015 to join the challenge vist the Food Standards Agency website
