(WIAT) — A tweet by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has sparked quite the argument on if you should or should not wash your raw meat.
Do not wash your chicken, according to the CDC.
During washing, chicken juices can spread in the kitchen and contaminate other foods, utensils, and countertops. Use a separate cutting board for raw chicken.
The CDC reports, chicken can be a nutritious choice, but raw chicken is often contaminated with Campylobacter bacteria and sometimes with Salmonella and Clostridium perfringens bacteria.
This Twitter report caught some users who practice different techniques when preparing their meat for consumption off guard.
After the media frenzy, the CDC followed up.
