We want to protect you and your family from food poisoning in your own home, particularly when handling chicken. So for Food Safety Week 2014, we're saying: 'Don't wash raw chicken'. This is because of a food bug called campylobacter, the most common cause of food poisoning in the UK. It can be fatal. Watch people talking about the real life effects of campylobacter food poisoning. Spread the word, not the germs. More at www.food.gov.uk/chicken
At any one time, there can be millions of germs on your hands. Some of these germs are harmful to health but can be eliminated by an effective hand washing technique.
