MINNEAPOLIS, MN, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2015 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Nasty, unhygienic and outrageous are just a few of the words used to describe a recent warning from the UK's Food Standards Agency not to wash raw chicken. However, while this advice maybe new for some, the U.S Department of Agriculture (USDA) has long been cautioning against this practice.

According to the U.S.D.A rinsing raw chicken does not kill any bacteria present in the bird. All it does is increase the risk of spreading the bacteria onto work surfaces, clothing and cooking equipment. Cooking is the only method that can completely destroy bacteria found in chicken such as campylobacter and salmonella. And the Agency recommends that cooking the poultry to temperatures of 165˚ to remove all traces of these dangerous imposters.

But not everyone was perturbed about the warning. One individual commented: "This is a non-issue: get a great thermometer and cook your chicken to 165 degrees. Also, when cooking chicken breasts, pound them flat. Doing this provide more even, quicker cooking, and no lower temps in one area than another. If cooking a whole roaster, put the thermometer deep into the breast (don't hit the bone), as this is the most dense portion of the bird."
