Never wash raw chicken!

If you think you’re being hygienic by washing chicken before roasting or barbecuing…you’re wrong.

A high proportion of poultry harbours salmonella and campylobacter, and if you hold it under a running tap, the water that splashes off the meat and lands on the surface surrounding the sink will be contaminated.

And if you wipe it up with a cloth, chances are you’ll only be spreading the germs across a bigger area, increasing the risk of food poisoning!
