USDA: Stop washing your chicken

News

(WTNH)– The United States Department of Agriculture wants you to stop washing your chicken. They say it could do more harm than good.

A study shows that even if your chicken is clean, you’re contaminating your counter-tops, sinks and any food nearby.

To get around the cross-contamination, prep everything before the chicken.

Then make sure to disinfect anything the chicken touched when you’re finished preparing it.
