Why you shouldn't wash raw chicken

Chicken: it's super tasty and a great source of protein. But it can also play host to nasty bacteria, and all food handlers must be careful preparing it.

For starters, don't wash raw chicken. The bacteria on its surface can spread in tiny droplets that splash around your kitchen – contaminating surfaces, equipment and other food.

Cooking chicken thoroughly kills the bacteria.

Also, when you're preparing raw chicken remember to wash your hands before and after handling, and use separate chopping boards and utensils to avoid bacteria spreading to ready-to-eat food.

'Great pick up especially with the cost of meat! But my anxiety would never let me eat it - discounted meat especially chicken is a no go,' one mum warned.

'Looks like they've been reduced twice, you might want to give it a quick sniff,' another recommended while a third wrote: 'I use the rule if it smells and is slimy THROW IT OUT. This applies to stuff in date by days or a day or 2 left and purchased on clearance.'.

'I remove from original packaging wash the juice, then portion them in freezer bags and freeze. Once I have got poisoned from was already marinated and cooked without washing,' a second explained.

Food safety experts however have said not to wash raw chicken as it can spread harmful bacteria around the kitchen.

According to the Queensland government initiative Healthier, washing chicken is not recommended as droplets of bacteria can splash around the kitchen and contaminate surfaces, equipment and other food causing illnesses like Salmonella.

Many of Coles chicken packages advised customers to store at or below 5C and if freezing, do so on the day of purchase and use within a month.

'Allow to fully thaw in the refrigerator prior to cooking and keep refrigerated until use. Use within 1 days of thawing. Once thawed do not refreeze,' the package reads.
