The Chicken Challenge!

18 May 2015 Last updated at 02:14

280,000 cases of food poisoning every year can be traced to bacteria most commonly found in raw chicken, according to figures from the Food Standards Agency (FSA).

Reduce food poisoning by taking the Chicken Challenge!

The main food safety points to note:

  • 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 splashes germs
  • wash everything that’s touched raw chicken in soap and hot water – your hands and utensils
  • check chicken is cooked properly – no pink meat, steaming hot and the juices run clear
