Join the Chicken Challenge

Join the Chicken Challenge and let’s halve campylobacter food poisoning

The FSA wants to cut the number of cases of campylobacter poisoning in half by the end of 2015. It could mean that over a hundred thousand fewer people would get sick next year. If everyone does their bit including industry and consumers this can happen.  Pledging to take the Chicken Challenge and to do at least one thing to help keep our tummies safe and healthy will make a huge difference in helping to achieve this goal.

The FSA is asking you to step up to the plate and promise to:
•       Bag and store raw chicken separately from other food, covered and chilled on the bottom shelf of the fridge

•       Not to wash raw chicken as it splashes germs

•       Wash everything that’s touched raw chicken in soap and hot water – your hands and utensils

•       Check chicken is cooked properly – no pink meat, steaming hot and the juices run clear
